I haven’t been here much lately between rush USCG submittals and deadlines on real jobs.
I had thought I was done with mucking around with the recent USCG catamaran submittals and could get some work done.
One of the hulls measured a half inch deeper than the other. That came to a difference in displacment of 3.5 pounds and a possible heel difference of 0.126 degrees. Unless I can talk them out of it, they will insist on a new complete stability study for each hull. As it is now, the stability is more than 40 times what is required for metacentric height, and over twice what is required for intact stabilty.
The whole crew there seems to be new. I’m trying to talk them out of this silliness. They do have unlimited power on this kind of thing.
