Carolina flare sportfishing boat
Posted 07 March 2011 - 07:12 AM
My name is Michael and I have a passion for Carolina flare sport fishing boats. One day I would like to build one in the 30' - 35' range. In fact, I have started an amateur design forum for this type of thing. The site is www.opensportfisher.org. I have put up some screenshots of the DelftShip drawings and I think they look pretty good. The DelftShip files are also available for anyone who wants to download them. My goal with this is to have a boat design that is freely available to anyone who wants to download it. The forum would be for people to ask questions and provide answers on the design, construction, and anything else to do with the boat. If you are interested, please visit and let me know what you think. I would think that if enough boat people get together we could make a boat that is light, strong, and safe. Once we get enough information, I want to start building. I will document the build and post pics on the forum.
I don't intend to steal traffic from this site, and I wouldn't consider this to be spam. If anyone takes offense to this, please let me know and I'll try to fix it.

I'm not much of a fisherman ... all that overhead casting is bad for your sails, and monofilament is hard to get out of baggywrinkles ... but I know there are some fans of the boat style around here. Graham of B&B Yacht Designs has built quite a few custom boats in the style (he's "Designer" in the support forums for B&B here).
