My quadmaran idea is that with 4 legs on a 40 foot container and 4 floats we could have a stable platform. With just the right shape and size floats they and the legs could fit inside the container. So the whole thing could be shipped as one container and then put together. With the right shape floats they can have a soft motion in the waves. With the wide stance, like 40 feet wide and 70 feet long, it would not tip too much or too fast. Could be very comfortable even when moving at slow solar power type speeds.
Found a 16 inch styrofoam ball on Amazon.
We put the ball in a trash bag on top of some cement in a short bucket to make a mold.
Showing how 4 floats could be fit inside. This box is 40 inches long, so we are modeling at 1:12 scale.
And 8 by 9 foot container (higher type) has about 11 foot diagonal.
Cut ends of legs so they fit over sides of box. Then drilled holes through legs and box. Then quicktie to hold together.
Box and legs with foam floats in general area to get idea of where we are headed.
Took a bunch of sand but then it is down in the water more.
You could push sideways on a float and the strings did not go slack, the model just moved sideways.
If you slow a video down by the square root of the scaling factor it shows you what waves would act like in the full scale version. So these videos are slowed down.
This is a good idea, Please share the steps on how can I do it. aaadfencedeck.com/deck-building-company/ReplyDelete
