Swede shaped canoe *Pic*

This is a canoe/rowing boat designed by CG Pettersson in 1913 CG Pettersson is the man who invented the so called Swede shape.

The boats name is Wigwam rather hip

The boat is designed for the artist Bruno Liljefors

This boat has a rather extrem shape but the LCB is just 56% other datas are cp 0.59 cb 0.448 draft at 123kg is 70mm

The wetted surface is huge and the boat vill problablly work best as a rowing boat

I have made a model in Rhino for a guy that vill build the boat starting this fall
