See, that where me and you disagree. I mean to the bone.

9 acres,…waterfront,… no way man. If you want to make this homeboys rich, go for it. Not me.


#82

LOL… I have several I want to build. One is actually trailerable. The best (imho) one is ~32 ft wide, 64 ft long and estimated 22.6 m.t. I have others, as well.


#83

There is only one way to find out. Build it.

Tires again? :blush:

Keep talking…

64’ is tough. 60 max for my truck. II can get away with red flag no escort but still illeagal cause of front overhang. 60 x 10 need permit anything bigger cost 3 xs as much

Funny thing, i immeadiately thought of “Burning Man On The Water”. There’s a song about that, but it’s set in Switzerland, not Florida.


#87

Which is why I need to be able to launch into water, not trailer something 4 lanes wide


(noboxes) #88

So really, you NEED only 32 feet of water frontage. Funny, me too, but i am not going to pay to have 20ft wide trailered 100’s miles to the gom, so i need an assembly space just prior to hitting the ramp. But not 9 acres worth.


#89

Again,…and again,… How many f---- times do I have to say this?? At 64 x 32 you build in the boat yard and splash.

How the heck you gonna launch 22 tons on your land without a lift,…DAHHH


(bill mapezzi) #90

I’m going to “launch(over a bridge if I have to)” off of my truck (6 used tire loads) a 128 foot catamaran “kit” and assemble it in the water (need 50 crew) and be at one of the gulf oil rigs the following day. 3 day weekend type deal. Instead of bridge deal how much would I have to pay?


#91

32 ft plus for clearances, but, I only need ~3 ft of water, to float it in, too…


#92

Hmmm. What’s that built off to draw only 3’ @ 64’ x 32" @ 22 tons?? Cork?

Is it a cat, maybe?


#93

22.6 metric tonnes of cork would take up more volume


#94

It’s not volume. Displacement.

Any money left to build after that ocean front real estate “deal”?


#95

32 ft beam, 64 ft loa

less than 3 ft displacement

Your numbers are off, not mine


(bill mapezzi) #96

It’s an aluminum container built with a mesquite bush hard bottom with a pointy pkywood bow and flat transom. It needs to be that heavy for stability? oh so not 32" ?


(bill mapezzi) #97

Do you have a sketch?


#98

check your messages


#99

As I said, if a cat, maybe. Still, as per your posts saying that is a “cement” construction I was thinking more like 5’ draw.

Not that it matters. Still decent if so.

oh.the real real “ramform”(type). Well that is a beast but its still not big enough to mothership an few acres of hydroponics.
