  1. if we knew WHY you need to establish the weight it would avoid all the confusion. it is impossible to predict the WEIGHT of a wooden boat unless you specify all the scantlings and the type of timber. if you need to know the displacement (i.e, the amount of water displaced by the boat in the conditions that you choose), you need to specify the draft of the hull in water. You stated 9ft high keel. Do you mean that the type of boat is a Humber Keel ? In which case the displacement (in tonnes) will be approximately 90% x L x B x D where D is the hull's draft at the mid-p
  2. stop it! you'll get me all hot under the collar. 😉
  3. yeah, exactly that - I can confirm by personal experience in 1962. much better era in all ways.
  4. You use the first person without explanation. So we can assume your name is either Lesley Tate or Chris Ward.

  9. it is perfectly clear. believe it or not, some boats are not suitable for staying on overnight, and most other boats may be used for recreation without staying on overnight. .............. oh, and by the way, there are boats other than narrowboats and cabin cruisers. some folk are just plain awkward, and behave that way just for the sake of it.

  12. please provide your extrapolation calculation. generally the power required to reach speeds (within the modest range we are familiar with) is exponential with regard to speed.
