Side Profiles?

Anything to do with mechanical, construction etc

Thought I would wake this post up a little.

Here is my teardrop on steroids. People ask me why the sides are so tall. My wife wanted cabinets on the front and back walls and to be able to fit a bunk bed for our grand daughter. This design afforded me enough room inside to do that. I went with the straight back design to allow for a little more room in the galley and on the inside back wall. I know, this must be confusing but it works. :?

Have a great day and hoping the weather is great no matter where you are!!!

I think that would be really interesting to Newby and Wannabe builders... I don't have the computer knowhow to set it up, but maybe someone else willing to take the challenge?
:thumbsup: ;)


Great idea. Would help me make up my mind of the side profile that I want to use

Thanks

Here's our number three.

It's based on the Grumman2 , but I've lost the flat spot above the door, and given it a little extra curve on the rear end.

Here's our first one for a comparison, I think this one is as Andrew drew it in the design library.

I love your profile and am going to "aim" for something like it. Mine will be 11 feet long by 4 feet high so I may have to make some "adjustments" though.

Good job.

Cheers,

Gus

Angib drafted up a profile I cobbled together after looking at Eric's standie. Here's the link over to that thread, since I don't know how to move images around. I'm better with tools.

http://tnttt.com/viewto ... c&start=75

It's 8' long, and the profile is just ove 6'4" high. No "slouchie."
