    Heh. :D

    There may be such a thing as too minimal in design, and we might have just encountered it.

    Its not so easy to bring 12 guests on a boat with 9,7m length if there is a requirement not to crawl into the cabin!
    If there is enough headroom in a limousine tender you don't feel packed like sardines in a can ;) but then you have to make a compromise about design linies

    Hi,

    Has the boat shown above actually been built or is it just the concept stage?

    The chocks where you show them would be a real pain for the deck crew to deal with when launching and retrieving, because obviously they would have to be removable.

    Why don't you look at incorporating some hydraulic rams that can come down out of the hull like feet and do away with the chocks?

    Hey!
    Actually it's just a design concept.

    Yes you are right that will be hard work for the crew to deal with them. In my concept I don't pay attention on these chocks, I only use them for the renderings.
    But I think it will be easier the integrate the chocks into the deck of the mother ship.

    More pictures and specifications you can find on the webpage of the chameleon 3200

    Hi,

    Over the years I have worked on boats with fixed chocks on open decks thru to Removable ones in Tender Garages.

    The Fixed ones were the easiest thing for the crew to cope with, the removable ones were a real pain.

    I saw the Hyd Ram idea on a tender a couple of years ago and have had this idea incorporated into two 9.85m boats we are building as Tenders now.

    The shipyard building the mothership is providing us with some insert plates in the deck with sockets to locate the legs machined into them.

    I am sure the first few times the boats are retrieved there will be a bit of back and forth to get everything lined up which should give the deck crew opportunity to make some marks on the cars and crane beams to make future movements to a more precise position fairly straight forward.

    that makes me think about those chocks...
    why don't integrate them so they just flip down? i mean - there should be plenty of space to just flip them and then you got nothing in you way...

    lift the boat - hit a button - they flip around and you have a flat floor

    Hi,

    Try selling that to the shipyard- especially one not far from where you are located.

    I was at FSG last week myself- nothing to do with a yacht though.

    I just saw one of "Octopus's" tenders speeding back to her from the port. Any body know the make of the crew RIBS?
