Anyone knows why the number of downloads nearly doubled for the picture of the beam in place? Can it be interpreted as an increase of interest in the F12 in general?

About the beams>>> 1) What is the diameter? 2)Wall thickness? 3) Alloy?
4)Radius of the bend?

Regards,
Bob

Bob,
beams are 6061, 63.5mm * 3mm and the bend radius is 3.152m. Billy bent his beams to 4.0m as that was the minimum the benders could do, so they aren't quite flush with the deck. Beams are also sized by what we could obtain, 60mm*2mm would be adequate if you could get it.

Cheers
RG

Unfortunately no. we have two boats with beams on being faired for painting third having beams mounted but progress is slow with constant interruptions.

RG,

Is there any information about the chinese serial Vudu production you can advance? Depending on price, specs, etc., I am be interested in buying one for my daughter.

If the final decision is to build one, it will be the round bottom, unstayed mast version.

If you wanted to post 9 pictures, note that the second three were repeated in the third post.
How much would they loose upwind without daggerboards? 2%? More?
