Marblehead Nationals 2017 – Results

This was a fantastic event. Not only did the wind blow straight down the lake for most of the three days, but the 48 boat entry, including 13 competitors from overseas, was of a very high standard.

There were examples of frameless hull shapes, made merely by joining specifically shaped panels together, like the SUPABUG design Footy. From that starting point of the most basic box section hulls there were curved shapes requiring more extensive shaping using temporary frames on which to construct the outer skin, or being sculpted out of solid wood or a series of ‘bread-and-butter’ planks of wood.
The examples on […]
