Thank you very much, Admiral!
This basically answers most of my thoughts/considerations.
That drawings have a good resolution allready.
One more, if I may?
Would you be willing to share the cross section plan(s) in a printable quality with me?
I just want to compare the hull lines with my Pirate Galeon lines.
Regarding the "HMS Royal Oak" - doing a google search I just discovered this link:
Now I know where these images originally come from!
Also love that one:
"HMS Archilles" - thatīs a good name!
Surfing the net to find more reliable datas about galeons of the 16th/17th century - especially of compareable size to my own german "Red Lion" of 1590 -
240-250 metric tons displacement -
I had come across the "Andalucia".
Really a nice galeon.
Actually doing a google search for cross sections of that specific ship I came across this video:
Holy ! All this stupid blablabla - and not a single moment of her under sails in it. And reporter voices like scratching nails -...-
Just checked on youtube for "Galeon Andalucia" and found this:
AAHHH! - Much better!
Even the music is acceptable!
And there is more.
This seems to be the buildcrew at the christening of the ship:
Lovely details to watch.
This time it at least stayed right side up:
Even a video of the build I found:
And then the huge surprise:
This damn thing is made of fibreglass/polyester and got twin diesel engines!!!
A quote from that site - with some technical datas.
But no mention, that itīs actually a polyestership:
"The Galéon Andalucía is made from pine, oak and iroko, a kind of hardwood sometimes referred to as African teak. It is 51 meters long and features a 10.10-meter beam with four masts for seven sails. It weighs 495 tons and has 10 cast-iron cannons."
The interesting part for me:
Itīs about a 1:1,25 scale compared to my "Red Lion" and twice as much displacement.
This is very helpful!
Thank you very much, Mr. Yancovitch!
I didnīt expect the (two) hullshapes to have much similarities,
just wanted to have something real to compare to.
And your "Royal William" is REAL!
I hope you have seen our lovely "Marylin Monroe" of all ships in color?
For more than 33 years I only knew these pics in black&white.
Just in case you`ve missed the link:
And what have you done in between?
Looking at the first video of the launch of "Galeon Andalucia", I wondered where her props might be located.
Today I found this second video:
Here it clearly can be seen the props are located a bit lower than half of her draft and forward of the rudder.
By the way - since yesterday my own galeon model isnīt any longer only a foam plug with wooden keel.
From now on this is really a hull.
5 layers of 290gr. fibreglass twill + 1 layer of 160gr. twill.
Plus 2.5 kgs epoxy resin.
Seemingly seamless laminate -...-
You shouldn`t try do do this unless you got a lot of experience with laminating. The tight radiusses around the keel are a pain to do and a challenge for your patience.
And if you dare to try this, NEVER try to do it with glassfibre LINNEN -
- allways use TWILL!!! + slow curing epoxy resin - 45 min. at least. -
Otherwise youīll never have a chance to get it right!
After the 4 hour battle and the day after:
Iīm gonna need all that space for installations.
Waterpumpdrive and so forth.
Only two bulkheads planned,
so this main lower structure needs to be stable in itself.
Laminate thickness 2.5mm.
And once the (removeable) superstructure is built,
the plug goes to the dumpster.
I only worry about 9 mm Parabellum and bigger.
What keeps me motivated to go on with shipbuilding?
Well - basically that kind of music:
Axel Rudi Pell:
Another (favorite) one from Axel:
(Love that saxophone!)
(that oneīs especially good when sanding a big hull! - Getīs ya goin )
This one is really dangerous - might be heading out to sea again!!!
(Gothic + opera style female voice = incredible)
Sorry if that appears too personal - just couldnīt resist.
Iīm just an emotional idiot.
