That 500 kg weight includes the engine and the superstructure, pilothouse and cabin?jacquesmm wrote: ↑Wed Apr 19, 2017 11:08 amThat weight is on the study plans page, about 500 kg. I say about because that is with the recommended engine, empty tank, some hardware, some gear.BogdanFerariu wrote: ↑Wed Apr 19, 2017 12:08 amThanks.
What is the full weight of the standard HM19, ready to put on trailer?
Is it esy to lunch from the trailer?
I have no intention to change the car, and I saw people handling this boats with cranes, and that scared me.
I need it to be easy handling.
I estimate what builders will put on the boat.
No need for a crane to launch that boat, a regular trailer is fine.
If so, I have a 600 kg loading capacity?
About the P21, it have a beam wider than alowed on towing in some EU contries.
I like most the ideea of the HM19 with the interior of the HMD19.
Is it posible to shorten the motorwell in order to gain some space in the cockpit? Even if it is 6-7 inches? It looks pretty large.
That space will be for increasing the pilothouse and enclose it.
A light enclosure will make the boat usable in fall and spring. I try to make the boat as usefull as an RV, with ocasionaly sleeping on board.
This is why I need the standing height, not to walk around but to be able to stand wile using the galey, or to stand up once in a wile, during long periods on board.
For that, I can accept a little decrease in performance or a little uglyness.
I saw at the UncleRalph's HM19 the lowered sole on the cockpit and I think to do it myself that way, or to split the missing height, and obtain it half from lowering the sole, in the center of the cockpit only, and half from making the roof a little higher.
Those changes should be ok, since they do not modify the hull?
