    Re: Nice ship... make it longer.

    The biggest issue will be docking down the three pieces in line and the right distance apart. Now that does require skill and "Right first time".

    She is not named until named by the sponsor at the naming ceremony when she first hits the water.
  3. Re: How many of you attach your boat trailer license plate directly to frame or fende

    That is going to be a pain in the butt when corrosion stiffens up all of the locking mechanisms. Stowing it on the tow vehicle at launch is less than convenient as well.
  4. Re: A vessel stability question for the N.A's or designers

    Yes, I realised why you referred to tugboats, and I can see how that fishing boat was waaay less than optimal.
    I still think that there is no benefit in increasing stability at speed if she becomes...

    Re: Nice ship... make it longer.

    With good CAD the piping should be in the correct place, you just need a spool piece to connect each pipe run. In new builds it is best to pull all of the cable in one go, so splicing across a...

    Re: Nice ship... make it longer.

    Same problem as building new. Each berth unit has to fit against its neighbours.
    The trick is to leave out a foot or so of the longitudinals at the berth butt and allow the deck and shell plate...

  10. Re: How many of you attach your boat trailer license plate directly to frame or fende

    Our trailer boards are made with rear lights that illuminate the number plate, effectively a clone of the back of the car.
    I tie mine on. It can be tied to the stern of the boat, to the back of the...
  11. Re: A vessel stability question for the N.A's or designers

    I can grock all of that, but I do not think that any of it can be applied to a boat. The interaction with the ground providing a couple to maintain balance is just not there with a boat, the...
  12. Re: A vessel stability question for the N.A's or designers

    I still doubt that the scallop dredger was going that fast especially when dredging. I plump for free surface effects.

    I have heard of a Norwegian boat loaded down to decks awash that had a void...
  13. Re: A vessel stability question for the N.A's or designers

    As you say, above our pay grade, but gyroscopes just confuses. Your change in waterplane inertia in waves may well do it for hulls with suitably formed sterns. I can see it working for the tugs and...
  14. Re: A vessel stability question for the N.A's or designers

    ^Surely a bicycle's wheels act a gyroscopes when in motion providing stability in both yaw and roll. Boats do not have that benefit.
  15. Re: A vessel stability question for the N.A's or designers

    Free surface is the only thing that I can think of that could do that. It is complicated stuff, it can be used as roll damping, or can capsize a ship if something changes to move it from just...
  16. Re: A vessel stability question for the N.A's or designers

    I cannot think of any mechanism that would do that, unless there was loose water on board. The loll indicates marginal stability, and if loose water surged forward as she stopped it might have moved...

  27. Re: A Retired Professor Thinks He's Discovered The Location of King Arthur's Camelot

    There were local warlords after the Roman pulled their legions out. No reason to argue that none of them were called Arthur. They will all have had a Hall or other base in which to hold court.

    I think that the same went for the Danes in the Danelaw, and probably for the Norse down the west coast.
