Naval Architect for Houseboat Hull Modification Anyone

Client active

About the job

I am modifying an existing houseboat, a 1976 Nautaline 43' fiberglass boat. We are inserting an 8' section of the same model houseboat into the middle to lengthen the hull. I am requesting a naval architect with experience in FRP layup/modification/schedules to provide stress analysis and provide layup recommendations for bonding the hulls together.
The attached picture shows the current state of this houseboat, with the brown painted section mocked up in the middle. No fiber glassing has been done yet.
A lengthy post on the website BoatDesign.net has further details (https://www.boatdesign.net/threads/naval-architect-needed-paid-i-cut-my-houseboat-in-half.68860/)
I have already done hull measurements to draw up the hull in Sketchup and Fusion360, so I can provide relatively accurate measurements of the existing hull design.

Goals:
1. Naval architect will provide detailed recommendations for the scarf joint layup, including ideal scarf ratios, fiber orientations, and epoxy type/application to ensure a strong, seamless bond between the original and inserted hull sections.

2. Naval Architect will propose a revised stringer system and bulkhead placement plan to restore the structural integrity of the modified hull design. This may include adding additional transverse framing beyond what was originally present.
