PARADIGM - lines plan. 2016 Lines plan only. 4.8 ± 0.2 kg.

This is a thoroughly updated version of the PARADOX design that was made by SAILSetc from 1992 to 1998 and which gave great success to many sailors worldwide. The carbon/epoxy fin and rudder 370/360 are recommended. Needs to be built light for best performance, but Mario Jorini's timber ASTRA 200 placed 4th at the 2000 World Championship indicating that a well prepared and sailed timber boat can be competitive at the highest level.

If you are unfamiliar with the construction of a Marblehead and do not have sufficient information provided by a lines plan only, then a construction plan will provide a lot of the information you need. We suggest you buy the NIMBUS Mk lll to get this information.

Electronic files

Our plans are not made as CAD files but are a combination of printed output from the Maxsurf hull design program that is used to create the 3D shape and pen and ink addition of information about the appendages and rig. For this reason we cannot send an electronic version of the plan. However we are able to send dxf or iges files, 2D or 3D, output from the Maxsurf program. The 2D files may be of the plan view, the profile view, or the sections. The section view may also show the sections reduced by a ‘planking’ thickness. If you will be using planking as the method of construction it is important to estimate the planking thickness after the fairing and finishing process has been completed. If you are intending to use the files for creation of CNC machined parts it will be important to specify the spacing of the waterlines, buttock lines and sections.
