First Attempt

Post by Kostas Kordakis on Fri Jan 31, 2014 10:55 am

Hi to all rigger friends of the forum
I am a designer in general  a friend of mine convinced me that I should try this too.
I have tried to gather as many photos and study quotes as possible for my new task.
Until now I had been designing parts for non scale yachts, racing cars (carbon bonnets, car floors, diffusers e.c.) and my last thing was an rc sailing boat.
I have almost finished it so I was looking for the next project when I met Nikos.
He is the reason for the new target.
He answered many of my questions about this kind of boats and now I am about to begin my new task.
I am going to use my experience in aerodynamics and the knowledge in cars.
So I am a lot influenced from the F1 world.
 

 
I am giving a Photoshoped picture to give you an idea.

The question now… Do we need any down force in this boats or just a stable flow of air under the main boat

first of all i have to say that you plan is great!!!
second of all i admire you for your desings so i am going to help you as much as i can!!! 

for that you ask my opinion is that we need both of them !!! balance is required in all boats!!! so we need the same quantity of air on the boat with the quatity under the boat !!! the question i will make to our friends is what changes do you propose to this project????

great idea kosta!!!! keep building riggers!!! Cool  Cool

Wow guys thank you.
In the last 15 hours the thread had 350 views and 4 replies,
so first of all I’d like to thank you all.

All I have is the fact that I do not know anything about those boats 
and maybe I will avoid the “bad habits” that many builders have in the category.
This is what I did in the sailing boats that I use to build until now.

Niko yes you are right! If anybody sees any mistake in the design 
he is welcome to notify and I will be motivated to make a research about it.

Tso and my RC lady, your enthusiasm is really what I need to go on and construct the boat.
The design is in my blade and I cannot resist in designing a new boat 
but the fact that attracted so many people leads me to the hardware store to get what I need for the beginning.

Φίλε Νίκο για να είμαι ειλικρινείς δεν ήμουν έτοιμος να κατασκευάσω αλλά εδώ τα πράγματα μάλλον αλλάζουν.
Τόσος ενθουσιασμός πραγματικά μου ξυπνά το ένστικτο της δημιουργίας.

Πραγματικά σήμερα κι ολας πάω στο ξυλουργείο της γειτονιάς για την απαραίτητη ξυλεία και να αρχίσω να δίνω μορφή.

Thank you - Ευχαριστώ

I would like to thank you all guys.


The fact that in the first 24 hours the thread had 501 views,
reveals that the first idea was a lot more attractive than I expected.


I was not so sure about if it worth the try of actually built the boat.


But now this is the bet that we got myself into.


I am in the process of design and one thing is for sure.
The proportions of the boat compared to the picture are completely different.


As I wrote above the picture is just giving an idea of the general shape of the boat.
The central body is going to be narrower and longer and the sponsons will be farther away from the central hull.
I am going to start with the structure on Wednesday I hope.



Will see.
