I really like the look of John's new Shiraz. However, I'm a bit biased as I'm also a fan of chines and straight gunwhales from transom to bow. Here are two of my older designs and the new 7 boR has the same design traits with a flush deck.

Attached are a couple of pics of my hard chine IOM which I call Porky Pig 4. I sail in a light wind region so I've tried to make the sections rounded to reduce wetted surface area, maximum rocker for turning and volume considering it's very narrow (160mm).

We all know BG has set the bar very high. It makes it that much more fun to TRY to reach it.

Any feedback?

Hi David, hope all is well, let us know how it goes. Looks nice.

Ted,

I'm pushing hard to finish hull no. 2 to bring it to Dallas for the Blowout. Can't wait...wind and warm temps (hopefully).

Andrew,

160 high x 50 wide, put the shaft 30 to 35% aft of avg leading edge. A friend has been experimenting with smaller ones getting good results. Make a few and see what works.

I think the rectangular shape gets the area down lower to help when the boat is heeled.

Back into some good breeze here and no problems to report on lowering the rig versus the boom dragging on the water,it was almost at the very top almost diving at times and it only dragged once and i was able to recover with the rudder so low it stays.Different designs may have different results.

Glad you like it, I have mine low but sure don't get much of a chance to try them.

Well i certainly won most of them,can't say if it's faster but it ain't slower,it must be an asset having the rig down low when in the upper ranges,from where it was it's down 2cm or nearly an inch so that's a fair bit,as you have said i would lean to having it as low as possible without having the boom dragging problem arise,when you said that i went oh oh as i did'nt think about it but it don't seem to be a prob with this boat.I shall continue to sail it this way as one day don't make a summer before messing with my Blue BP as that is sailing well.

You can get a hull cover here: http://www.windwardrc.com/

I have no idea where to get a boat stand, most guys make them or adapt some type of stand to work an IOM.

Hi Fred
I'd be in interested in seeing plans for one of the diagonal/ lay on it's side at about 60 degrees IOM stands.
.
Here's a source for a simple $20 verticle stand that i believe will work on an IOM.. it's $6.00 or so for shipping ( to San Diego, CA) but that beats the price of the gas to get the materials almost every day. JimS
