Calvin Is doing a wonderful job on this. Thought you guys may want to see what this looks like and how he builds a plug.

Always wondered how molds were made.

Stewart - Given the date stamp on the photos, is this an earlier plug that we're looking at? Obviously the photos were taken at the shop on Barney's Cove. As I look at the photo showing the propeller aperture, it appears as though there is measurable deadrise at the transom. Is that so or is it the angle at which the picture was taken?

New 30 Calvin Beal @ SW Boatworks

I spoke with Stewart last week about the new Calvin 30.

As I recall the conversation, the new mold for the 30 will be ready in 3 months or so. The plug is built and being faired.

The new 30 Calvin will be 30' L X 12' W X 11'6" @ the transom.

The hull will be able to swing up to a 28" wheel. Low profile engines such as the Iveco or Cummins QSB will be able to fit under the helm deck with a 6" or so step up.

For what it's worth,

sounds like it may be similar to the RP 31, a willis beal hull.

Still hoping for an explanation of the deadrise at the stern. The views of this on the half hull and on the plug don't show as much detail as I'd like but on the half hull, the deadrise appears to be standard Calvin - about zero degrees while the deadrise in the photo of the plug appears to be much more substantial.

Massive wheel for a 30' (I doubt that she'll be sneaking through "No Wake" zones unnoticed). Calvin has never drawn a bad boat and I wish he and Stewart much success with this beauty.
