    Rael,

    I'm not generally a fan of proas or shunting, but I'm very interested in your boats and the clever innovations you've come up with, and you make them pretty as well. I saw this where you posted it on BoatDesign.net.

    I'm looking forward to seeing the finished product in action. You've really gone big with this one. Will you be able to operate it all from a cockpit? What will you be using for a steering system on this one?




    Happy to hook u Curtis..... Proas are amazing that much you must know....

    Revival of the shunter is the missing link in modern boat design. Shunters were the first multi, and they will be the last......

    Again the cockpit is on deck somewhere at the back near the Vaka, so 2 helm stations, one at each ens... Steering? I will have 2 lifting rudders on each end, and my beloved AD-Scull invented by Mr Atsushi Doi.


    All the best

    Keep Shunting,

    Balkan Shipyards
