Since the M class is a developmental boat, you should make a Modified Hot-Dog for the heavier air to go after the Skapels.


Hmmm. What to call it?

Wouldn't take much to soon make those plans to scale, That looks like standard grid paper. Play join the dots.

The boat that changed the game...
$60,000 worth of computerized test tank time to develop this boat.



Anyone want one? I can forward you to someone with a couple for sale, for roughly 0.05% of that cost.

Sure would be.
Might be a little easier to build from this though.

HA!
I haven't got 1/1000000th of the material that was made in the Marblehead Class.
What I do have, I want to share instead of hoard, to get interest turning and boats sailing.



I do have some stuff but there is vastly more in Attics, Basements, estates. yada yada.
It's out there, and people keep coming out of the woodwork on this forum asking "What is this?"
Well, It's just another M!

Would love to join the party, but have working on refurbishing some old US1Ms. I have a Swede Hot Dog, one meter. Am working on getting my hands on a M class boat called Shadow. If I see the right deal I will pick one up.

Hard to tell from the photo - but does the "Toad" have any keel rocker? The side view (to me) looks like the bottom of the hull is nearly flat.
