Hello all, I spoke with Stewart Workman @ SW Boatworks in Lamoine, Me this past week.
I called to ask about the 30 Calvin Beal he's promoting on his website. The one with the picture of the new miniature
plug of the hull with no keel.

The plug with keel is close to being finished. The new boat dimensions are 30' L X 12' W X 11'6" at the transom. The hull will be able to swing up to a 28" wheel and as Calvin's designs are it is a skeg boat.

Stewart stated she's a "big" 30 with a 12 ft beam than ends up @ 11'6" @ the transom.

With the ability to swing a 28" wheel this new hull will be able to make use of the higher horsepower diesels. Stewart said with a "step up" helm deck the boat can fit an Iveco or Cummins under the deck.

Stewart figures the new molds showed ready in 3 months or so.

Thought I'd pass this info along :D .

For what it's worth,

Bill D

From the pictures I've seen, it looks like he's been busy building CB 38's and 44's. Maybe the 30' got put on the back burner until he catches up with the orders?

Plugs & Molds

As of 2 weeks ago, they have not even started on the mold yet:eek:
There is some obvious confusion here when one post mentions the plug not being finished and another post mentions that the mold hasn't been started yet ...

The plug is a full size, mirror image of the finished (production) piece. It is used to produce a female mold from which finished pieces will be laid up. Plugs are used only once so they are often (in Maine) built from plywood frames planked with softwood (typically pine). Considerable time is spent finishing the plug and the plugs often end up as the core of a one-off hull.

Downeaster- I don't think there is any confusion on how molds are produced, I think the real problem is Bill D is getting antsy on when he can get his hands on a new 30' CB. He's got his name on a new 480hp Cummins, and just needs a hull to put the engine into;).

You are lucky to come away with your sanity.

Be very very carful when moving your DE boat by truck or travel lift with the bow down and a loaded exhaust.:eek:
