Turning a fast chase boat into a cruiser is the next goal of world cruisers, Scott and Mary Flanders. They have found the right boat, trucked her to North Carolina, and in a few months begin the modifications necessary to create a highly competent pocket cruiser.
In this final piece on the Adventure Series, Scott and Mary wrap up their discussion of this very different kind of cruising motorboat, specially designed to voyage in higher latitudes. Hopefully someone will step forward to take this design into production, and the rest of us can witness the dawn of a new concept of adventure boating.
In this third article of the new Adventure Series motorboat, Scott Flanders walks through some of the features and design elements that came up from a meeting with his builder, a naval architect, and Bill Parlatore. The rough edges softened into more specific design spiral elements, and the design continued to evolve.
Scott and Mary Flanders begin a new journey, a new path, with a new design concept for a cruising ocean motorboat. This begins a series of posts that will follow the philosophy behind the design spiral, the construction, and all that will follow....
