I've had a couple of requests for reduced shadows for the Noux by people wanting to home-build the boat using planking or other methods. Here are the lines with 1-6mm offset from the outer hull surface. A DXF file is attached to the pdf, click the small paper-clip next to the text to save the DXF as a separate file

thanks for this, I will keep you informed on the Noux I will (try to) build this winter......
I recently downloaded freeship, hull design program.
I hope you don't mind but I had a go at inporting your drawing into the program.
I posted a small photo of the output of freeship today on the IOM forum at
As I said I hope this is ok, if not I'll remove it.
I'm building a Noux 2 as a school project and I just wanted to know how far apart the planking frames should be? (3mm offset)
If we start at the bow, at the front of the bumper and call that 0 mm.
The first frame is at 12mm
second at 100mm
3rd at 200mm
and so on
10th at 900mm
11th at 1000mm
Any chance of a drawing of the deck in pdf or dfx
the new style deck (rounded foredeck and cockpit aft-deck) is really more suitable for glassfiber moulding, it wouldn't be easy to build the decks to the design shape using plywood or planking etc.
The deck is included in this pdf / IGES
let me know if you wanted some other kind of drawing of the deck.
Would it be possible to have a DXF file for the reduced shadows drawing,
I am looking to build the Noux as a first wooden IOM.
great informative site - thanks. I would like to have a go at building one of these but I can't get the dxf file within the pdf to save anywhere. Can you please email it to me or post it on your site.
Brett: I tried it with Adobe Acrobat Reader 8: open the pdf, right click on the paper-clip and select 'save embedded file to disk'. It works.
I am also using AA Reader 8.1.2 with Vista but the save option is not available, only open or search. Right clicking doesn't give any file handling options at all. I have managed to get it saved using Acrobat Standard on a work PC. Thanks for the followup.
