Kevin if the boat comes out half as good as the cad files she's going to be a beauty. Wish I could swing one.

It really is looking great, Kevin! But didn't you tell me a while back that this was going to be a late-life version? Which would mean the 'squid-tail' look per the '59 & '69 drydock pixs. Or did you decide to go with the as-built version? Just wondering. Image

Slight change of plans. Seems the as launched version is be a bit more popular so, I went with it instead. It was a lot more research but I think it is looking awesome. You can even make it into the under ice version now.

Hmmm... seems like an opportunity for an aftermarket tail mod add-on. Or maybe you could come out with a whole accessory kit to cover the later versions.

So what is the difference in the tail configurations? I wasn't aware of the changes.

Some called the later tail config the squid tail. It is lengthened and comes to a point. I can kind of see it in the photos george posted.

Paul, maybe these show it a little more clearly. My understanding is that this was done to smooth out some turbulent flow at speed which was causing some potentially damaging vibration in the hull plating. Kevin, have you come across any dimensional data or plan drawings of this configuration?

Excellent photos! I do believe I have 1 or 2 drawings showing the later tail configuration.

Which version of the Nautilus are you going to build Dave? I am thinking under ice version but am not 100% on that yet :)

Now I see it. I like the as-built version. But, man, what an exotic looking boat.

I would like to build her as she looked when she slid down the ways.
Limber holes and all. :mrgreen: BD.
