    For a new guy here, your post is rather well done, comprehensively described. Considering all the things you've done to narrow the problem, I'm surprised it's as bad as it is. Only one thing jumps...

    What percentage of infill do you have set? Can you either attach your STL file or link it from the source? The brim has an even surface, which bodes well for the bed leveling. I'm not sure what to...

    Once you turn on the supports, you should see how they are placed in the preview. What slicer are you using? There are adjustments available for support density, support angle, others.

    You'll want to locate the setting in your slicer for supports. Turn on supports and the slicer will create a print file that builds a series of walls or towers that sit where the droopies happen....

    It sounds as though the 47 inches would be the length of the hull. That's going to require a rather large printer, unless you can accept segmenting and gluing of the printed parts. A fellow...
