Proto 2008 Versions
The Proto 2008 specifications are taken
from Freeship, the boat design software that I use to design my
sailboats. Toying around with ideas grabbed from everywhere, I
come up with 4 versions of the same basic design. See for
The first is the prefered one. Round hull but with on chine
strating at midhull to the transom.

Another version is the complete round hull. The same design
than Proto 2007 with small tweaks:

And a third version is for a double chine hull.
This could be the easiest hull to build. Like stitch and and
glue technic. Easier to fair also. The panels are already

The last version I would have very much liked to
build is this one with wings. But using the 3d software and
heeling the boat, I found that the wings would be in the water
at 20 degree of heel. wings in the water are slow. The wings
are good if there is crew to retard the heeling moment. So not
for my purpose.
