I live on the beautiful lake which I want to row in my own boat ;-))
I was inspired by this:
I needed fabrication method and I founded it here:
First task was to design hull. Using Delft software I developed hull for my weight and hight;
and using Fusion360 I designed outrigger;
and hull profiles;
At this point Maslow is brilliant!!!
Using hull profiles as patterns, styrofoam and home made hot wire cutter, I’ve cut slices of my hull;
and glue them together;
Now it is time for Maslow to shine - cutting outrigger. (I used up every piece of my marine grade plywood - hence this funny mosaic on Maslow ;-))
It turned up pretty good.
and final form:
Now back to hull - endless fairing, sanding, fairing sanding…
and fibreglassing (with little help from my friend…)
and fairing, and sanding…and painting… and sanding… and…
But here it is!
It is SUP as well;
Time for test on water;
Couple of bugs in outrigger design - overall very good stability and speed potential. Perfect as SUP. Next week I am expecting delivery of pair of skuls so more tests to come.
Lake will be MINE! ;-))
Thank you folks for your kind words - I really appreciate it. All of this was possible because of fantastic job of Maslow - thank you Bar. Maslow gave me possibility to create and broke the mould what is possible and what is not. Another issue is support - when I was building Maslow, I’ve got excellent advice from all over the world. Thanks to Maslow community I solved my mechanical and software problems on the spot. It took me only 2 weeks to assemble and debug my Maslow!.
I think that with current experience I will make a second build of Maslow. There is a slight issue with accuracy - distortion in x-direction, so I need more rigid frame and definitely new sled.
Overall a lot of fun and open possibilities - most important robust workflow from concept to design, machine readable G code, CNC, fabrication. And all of it in my own garage without mortgaging my wife and my dog
Thank you guys
