I think I can take some inspiration from this construction.
as a project I seem very similar to cx 25

Peter I've admired the work you did at your boat, you made me dare to build a cx.
saying that I would make some changes does not mean they have already done so. advice is always welcome even if they are different from their own ideas.
Thanks for your help!!!!
Dalnilo Thank you for the compliment,for the record I wasn't responding to you but to Rich, he has "troubles" enough as it is going trough the first phase of his build, let alone making major changes like that, that is what I was thinking is not a wise idea.
As for your question, keep in mind that the CS as with other bateau boats is a very light boat, raising the sheer that significant and building a pilot house that high on top of it wouldn't contribute to stability or enjoyable characteristics, just my 2 cents but it is your boat you should do as you please :wink: 8)

To compare: that boat is approx 3300 kg single 300 HP Suzuki OB opposite to the CS 25 of approx 1400 kg single 300 HP Suzuki OB

Is that total weight, fully rigged and with fuel and gear?
8ft dinghy built in 1992, BBV sufferer ever since.

CS Hull weight 765 kg Stripped hull, before rigging, no hardware. Estimated hull weigth with tanks and hardware: 908 kg
All specifications are approximate and subject to changes in function of the mood of the designer and the skills of the builder . . .

with how much difference can there be? I would like to make the roof a little more modern, perhaps with more rounded shapes.

I'm not making the numbers it is what it is, CX Stripped hull is approx a 100kg more at 865 kg.
The boat you were showing earlier is different from the CX or CS, it's LOA = 1 meter longer sheer and pilot house are significant higher.

Sure you can do that, if it were me I use a foam core for that.
But fitting in a 2 persons berth with a pilot house over it like shown in the Moda boat will make it to high and top heavy, at least that's what I think.
I would have liked that Moda much more if it was longer and wider more in proportions with the the higher sheer, but as always beauty is in the eye of the beholder :wink:
