Parche bladder constraints

Postby Art Broder » Sun Aug 24, 2008 10:14 pm

Chris said,
"So... one of the problems I had was getting the boat to the surfaced waterline. The bladder was constrained by the upper hull, so I couldn't inflate it fully without bowing it.

Drastic surgery was needed."

Next time you or anyone else has that problem you might want to go up to the next larger size bladder. That will give you the same amount of air in the bladder with less height, and could solve your problem without major surgery. Sometimes you can get better scale waterline by just placing the bladder horizontally over the WTC, instead of vertically, using the overhang like saddle tanks.

I like any ideas that save work.

That is a great idea, I was having the same problem getting the 23 to water line, I think I will try that also.

Chris can't wait to see her running that is a great looking boat.

Thanks Doc.

Getting to the finish line. Oh wait... There is no finish line with these things....


If there was, we wouldn't have as much fun!

Oh, those are built into the sub!

I didn't realize, but then again, I should have, as the Halibut showed the use of struts when sitting on the ocean floor.
