New Open Hull Design - REVO

Post by DynaMarine » Tue Oct 14, 2014 10:17 am

Well we can't leave well enough alone and had to come out with one more hull design. The last two years we've tried a couple different designs and each have had their own following. Everyone who's ever ridden on, or driven one of our Raptor model boats loves everything about it, from the ride, performance and overall looks. Even though most folks love the sled look, the common conscious was that an open hull would still be their preferred hull of choice. Well we already had the EVO model, why not throw a Raptor bottom on an EVO style boat?

Well we did just that. Meet the REVO.

I wonder how that would look with an LSA and DB rigging in it. Old school meets new. ;) I can imagine a 15 footer that is as free as my little sled.

New Open Hull Design - REVO

Post by DynaMarine » Sat Nov 01, 2014 6:10 pm

Started laying out the first REVO today.

14' x 7'6" with .125" 6061-T6 bottom, .100" 5086 transom, sides and bulkhead and .080" 5052 front deck. Print weight before weld says 386lbs, see what she weighs after its all welded out!

Easy there, big guy. It was a tongue-in-cheek comment.

Plum - We're looking at a starting dry weight of 386#. Probably 10# of welding wire used in this hull, maybe call it 400# when it's all said and done.
The design is easily scalable both in length, width and side height. Whatcha thinkin?

been looking at this 2.0 i got in the shop and the tq #s seem good to me .... 11 x 7 dd eco... if i can come up with a thrust control to save the crank. :stirpot: seriously there is a good market for 4 cyl a/c in that size for open hull welded boats if there light?

Sounds like a cool project and I'd imagine that the market would eat up a lightweight, economical setup like that. Best estimate on weight for a 12x7 is 315# give or take a few. Maybe a tad lighter if we go .090 sides and maybe .080 or so front deck.

Have you considered an external restraint for thrust? Perhaps something along the lines of a gearbox but no gears; shaft passes straight through. You could use it as a rear engine mount and have an appropriately sized conical bearing to transfer thrust load without loading the crank. You could even make it to house a clutch. :idea: Probably wouldn't have to be too big of a deal. You guys have the milling machines to make your hubs. Just design a housing for the bearing that would double as a rear engine mount.

Yep that's one way to do it, even use a soft drive for further isolation.
