Hi.

 

I have a racing powerboat that I want to build a wing for the rear of it, I am looking for a plan, and construction details, lay up etc, for a canard about 8ft span, I don't need any moving surfaces on it ( as the boat has none, it will be fixed). I have always looked at a canard aircraft and figured the front wing would be perfect for this!. I would prefer to build with compisites, and foam, but help with spar placement, ribs , etc, etc, just need to know how to build it. and/or be pointed in the right direction

 

Any help would be very much appreciated :D

 

Apoligies in advance if this canard construction is somewhere on another post!

 

Regards

Peter

Take a look at www.aerocad2.com. They have a complete set of plans that you can download and inspect.

 

Good luck, and if it doesn't work on the boat, just keep building until you have a plane!! :cool:

That's a good start -- look in Chapter 10 -- Canard.

 

The only issue is that you need to pay $ to get actual the actual cross-sectional templates that you'll use to hotwire the foam.

Maybe this is the start of an amphibious canard design. ;)

Not sure that the profile from plans canard will do what you want it to, but look at the plans for insight into the hot-wired foam & moldless composite construction technique. The plans canard is designed for efficient cruise at 150+ knots!

 

Something with a bit more chord and maybe even end-plates might do the job.
