HOW MUCH WILL MY BOAT COST? REALLY?

… and what is the connection between pricing your project and cake?

I've updated the page on Project Pricing with some Designer's Comments and little bit of personal philosophy thrown in for good measure.

G'NOME ON THE PACE AT AIRLIE

Yeeeha! Terry Archer and crew enjoying a bit of breeze aboard G'nome at Airlie Beach Race Week just completed.

G'nome is a modified Grainger 075 competing in the Multihull Racing Division under OMR. She placed third in the six boat fleet. Great to see these boats still competitive after some 35 years of sailing.

Congratulations to Dale Mitchell who skippered Orma 60 to a closely fought win against Michael Ven der Zwaa's X10.

NEW ARTICLE IN THE LAB

A closer look at the numbers we use to predict the performance and handling characteristics of the cruising cats we choose to sail. Click on this link to go straight to the article.

 


RAKU 40 LIGHT JOINS THE LNEUP

The extra wide opening in the saloon bulkhead (2.3m) gave us the opportunity to compress the cockpit space and move the aft beam forward to trim some weight, but more importantly it moves the centre of gravity forward giving us more liberty with the shaping of the underwater hull profiles.

 

The cockpit layout works well with tiller steering too. This is a rocket ship and a cruiser in the same package. Details coming to the Raku pages soon.
