Title: Question about the paddle box and sponson of a PS
Post by: Ilhan Gokcay on August 09, 2019, 05:55:58 PM
Hello again,

I'm still working on the drawing of my PS. Altough I have/collected much of information I came again to a dubious point and ask for opinions.
I marked the positions of the sponsons with red on the side view plan, I think there should be also a sponson where I marked with green as this is where the paddle box sits. I'm not sure if it is true what I think. Should there be a sponson or otherwise how is it constructed.
I have also a cross section drawing where there is no support shown for the sponson. I'm not sure if there are supports for all of the sponsons or not.
And if the other shorter sponsons are like the one on this cross section drawing.

Thanks in advance

Ilhan

Hullo again Iihan.....

I believe the structure of the paddle box sponsons was designed as such with the two principal support elements on either side of the open box itself [which I have marked with a green X]   adequately support the sponson and the weight of the paddle box
