The 45ft. SEEKER is a hard chine displacement hull capable of speeds up to 12 knots. A 250 s.h.p. diesel should give 12 knots at full throttle and cruise at 10.8 knots. The craft has a wide fairly flat stern section which enables it to leave the wake clean at maximum speed thus increasing the speed considerably from normal displacement hulls with a consequent fuel saving. The Seeker has a hold capacity of 10 tonnes or 324 cubic feet. The craft has 7 tonnes loading capacity to the designed L.W.L. and it displaces 2000 lbs per inch of immersion and can safely be put down another foot which would give a further 24,000 lbs load carrying ability or 10 tonnes, The standard propeller aperture is for a 36" diameter propeller. However, this can easily be increased to 40" if desired. The hull is plated in thicknesses ranging from 5mm to 4mm and is constructed over frames at approximately 3 ft. centres. The frames in the engine room and other areas are slightly closer spaced to allow the vessel to be extended out to almost 50ft. if desired. The shell plating is supported on fore and aft stringers and the craft is constructed upside down for ease of welding and plating. There is approximately 12 tonnes of steel required to build the hull, decks and cabin.

The Seeker has a four berth crew accommodation under the fore deck with toilet compartment, hanging lockers etc. She also has a large roomy wheelhouse with oil skin lockers and galley and plenty of room for a dinette. The engine room is under the wheelhouse floor for ease of access and to prevent possible water entry. The hull takes approximately 1100 hours to construct and the decks, cabin, engine beds etc. a further 1500 hours.

The plan includes FULLSIZE LOFTING of all the stations as well as detailed drawings on hull construction, cabin structure, decks, hatches, plumbing arrangement, shaft, steering, rudder etc. The plan has been drawn to comply with Marine Department survey requirements.
