    hi ppls

    is it just me or does the boat need to have a longer deck (plus a few meters on to that bow) or more of an aggressive sheer line to get away with the stem...? the superstructure just doesnt seem to suit it... comments? and go easy, im new here :)

    thanks for the pic lars, the bow section looks more the part (personal thing). i love the straight stem, but only if the designer has gone nuts with the rest of the overall design.

    far.;)

    After thinking about far's post, and seeing the other pic linked by Lars... I think far makes a good point. A straight stem out where the traditional bow's fo'c'sle is would make for a strikingly handsome yacht IMO.

    Speaking of "Aviva", is it just me or is it that Aviva is not regularly photographed. I hardly see new pics of her, anyone have any recent shots of her?

    Hi,

    Ron- AVIVA isn't snapped regularly as she not cruising on the beaten track.

    Sounds like a good guess.

    thanks PFJW, i had 1.5m but thought it was way to much and it was eating cabin space, and the looks of the boat. so 1 meter it is.

    cheers :D

    I would be more inclined toward the 1.5m. As crew I think in terms of moving from here to there, but an owner might like to stroll with a honey or pass someone without both turning sideways.

    I'd include 1.5m as being "around 1m".

    It all depends on which deck, where the side deck goes, who will be using it, how much it will be used, how much interior volume you want...

    Of course, if you have planform curvature in the hull/ bulwark sides and a straight-sided superstructure, the width of the side deck will vary along its length, so it depends on whereabouts you are measuring - maximum, minimum, average, etc.

    its the main side deck, same level as the back deck. u see the hull is like a skiff, skinny till it hits the midships, then she gets fat as u move aft (so style very important), the deck ends at midships. main use of the deck will be moving fenders/spring lines (motor inlets and outlets location). max width that i can really make it is 1.35m, which i have done. the next 2 levels i have made 1.25m, so 2 ppl can take a walk side by side, 3 ppl will be pushing it. my main aim is not getting wedding cake syndrome. :eek:. ive just noticed that Aviva's main side deck looked pretty narrow. so i thought i would ask the question. i should start a new post with this as the topic. but it sounds like my question has been answered, thankyou

    cheers :D

    Hi,

    I just spotted this.

    The Air Inlets to the E.R. are on the aft end of the house on the Upper deck and the outlets ( over pressure) are outboard on the Bridge Deck.

    The forebody is narrow but once it gets to around midships the visible bits are pretty straight, there is no noticeable narrowing or widening as you go aft.

    No It isn't and this is what I wrote about below your post yesterday.

    Your post from yesterday was moved by the Moderators to the correct thread for the boat in the pictures.

    EVIVVA is built by Westport in the US not by Abeking and Rasmussen in Germany.
