26 PHIL BOAT BOLGER DESIGNERS,PO & FRIENDS,INC. 1209,GLOUCESTER,MA BOX FAX 978-282-1349 01930 Bolger on Design Hope Outboard Utility Design #258 16’0” X 6’4” Hope was designed over 30 years ago as a workong>inong>g lobster boat. The late Ben Dolloff of Gloucester built her for his grandson. She was ong>inong>tended to be efficient with an 18hp two-stroke motor that was on hand, and with that motor she made 10-1/2kts (that’s about 12mph) with two men on board and well soaked up. Ben built her strip construction “because he wanted to try it,” but he used an elastic seam compound ong>inong>stead of glue besides the usual edge nailong>inong>g. She remaong>inong>ed tight and stiff for many years. Ernie Tarr, also of Gloucester, built two or three boats from the design but used caulked carvel plank on bent frames. One of these is shown ong>inong> Photo #1, taken today as I write (October 1, 2005). She’s been heavily sheathed with fiberglass, to which she’s entitled at around 30 years of age. Lately there’s been some new ong>inong>terest ong>inong> the design on account of its ability to perform well with modest power. Settlong>inong>g for moderate speed also allows the deep and sharp forebody for an unusually soft ride ong>inong> choppy water. Photo #2 is one of two Hopes built with glued lapstrake plywood plankong>inong>g by Ross Lillistone’s Bayside Wooden ong>Boatsong> ong>inong> Wynnum, Queensland, Australia, for use on the Great Barrier Reef. The frames before plankong>inong>g show the easy entrance long>inong>es of these boats. One of these two boats has a 15hp four-stroke outboard motor. The one ong>inong> Photo #3 has a Yanmar 1GM10 diesel, about 8hp with 2.21 reduction gearong>inong>g to turn a 12x10 three-blade propeller. No speed report so far, the photo was taken at 2000 engong>inong>e rpm. This ong>inong>stallation was designed by the builder, at the owner’s ong>inong>sistence we have no drawong>inong>gs of it. Both owners are happy with their boats. The cuddies are for locked stowage. On the other side of the ocean boatbuilder John Tuma of Fremont, California, built a Hope for his own use, Photo #4. This boat is glued strip construction and was kept even simpler and lighter than the origong>inong>al by usong>inong>g an extension tiller with no console. A tiller has the drawback that it doesn’t give you support agaong>inong>st the motion of the boat, as a wheel does, and when the tiller is long, as here, you have to stand up to make large steerong>inong>g movements. The gaong>inong>, besides simplicity and reliability and a savong>inong>g of weight and cost, is the open space to move around ong>inong>, play a fish, etc. Power is a 15hp fourstroke. Initial trial gave 15mph with one person and 12mph with three people, by GPS. John tells us that the boat has been admired, especially the bow shape and the nice way the bow wave rolls over and goes
