Project Description

Bait Boat Hull

Year: 2011 – 2015 | 2018 – 2020

Project

The bait boat hull that will be part of the equipment of fishermen, giving them the freedom to assemble their own project. By providing them with a larger dimensions, they can add all sorts of components and accessories to it in view of their requirements, possibilities and desires. The hull has the following dimensions – 879 mm. length, 613 mm. width, and 358 mm. height. This is a type of “trimaran”, but with a more massive structure for better stability. The boat container has a maximum capacity of 11 liters. Several optimal characteristics are combined in the product: stability in water, access to important equipment, bait capacity and deployment of more accessories and components. The hull will be mainly made of composite materials (fibreglass or carbon fibers) through manufacturing technology, using vacuum infusion or vacuum bagging.

Development

The product is designed with larger dimensions, which gives possibility of more accessories and components: rechargeable batteries; sonar; propelled engines; antenna; camera; GPS; niche LEDs; separate components and buttons in the rear; installation of photovoltaic cells in the upper part of the two boat shells. Equipment and accessories can be arranged in a way that is considered appropriate by the fisherman. On the top of the two side boat shells, lids are going to be placed for easier access to the battery, without having to open the main hull. With a hull of this type, the feeding area covered will be much larger, and the bait may be dropped just by the opening of a cover or a couple of covers in the middle boat shell of the boat. I have also left the principle of opening to the fishermen – the cut of the opening is their choice, as well as the mechanism for opening and lowering the bait.
