36R Information

Recommended Posts

I have been given a bare fibre-glass 36R hull which I would like to build as a vane steered model.  I have been told the hull is a Jagermeister by Martin Dovey but unfortunately he no longer has  any drawings of that design, which is about 30 years old.  The hull came with a keel weight which seems to my inexpert eye to be a bit on the heavy side at 3.75 kg.  Does anyone have any information on this design or could anyone advise me whether the keel weight is likely to be correct?

I have tried putting the hull in our pond with the keel weight in approximately the correct position.  The water line came up to less than 10 mm above the bottom of the stem and just on the bottom edge of the transom.  On this basis I think the weight will probably be OK after all, provided I fix it in the correct location longitudinally on the centreline.  However any advice would be gratefully received.
