Along the sheer, without a doubt. Great looking boat - looks indestructible!

Re: Leme rephrase my question. by Newbe-CS-20

I have to admit, I like CS 20 too! It looks like a terrific boat. One good build could open the floodgates! Does CS 20 also have more deadrise than Cabin Skiff? One is rated for up to 40 hp; the other for up to 175 hp. Surely they are VERY different boats despite being similar in looks and concept?

Re: Barrel Zip

This much is certain- If you can successfully build your Zip as you've rendered it, it will be gorgeous! Great looking take on the Zip!

Re: Roberta's Torpedo

FWIW- In my view, the upper fin on the hatch looks just right and perfectly complements the other design elements back there. Simply a brilliant piece of work overall and a true inspiration. Cheers!

Re: Time to come out of the closet, True Grit

Curt- Your boat is so interesting, innovative and great looking that I, for one, would love to see more photos! I'd guess that others would, too. I'd be really interested in how you're going to power her, as well. Once again, an amazing build. Good luck with it! Doug

Re: I/O weight for Double Eagle angle True Grit

Is it possible that a 10% hull extension would provide some extra buoyancy aft to help support the weight of a sterndrive power plant? Just a thought FWIW. Cheers and good luck.

Re: New squirt build

You might also consider Flying Saucer. It is exactly 12' and has a little more beam than Squirt, which might be handy. Good luck whatever you do.

Re: Dick Williams Belle Isle Update and Launch ... October

MAGNIFICENT!!! At first I couldn't decide whether your creation is a boat or a work of art, and then I realized it is both! Beyond stunning.

Re: Bravado Build

Unless I am mistaken, Carioca has the same hull as Bravado, has an enclosed cabin that resembles the one on Cabin Skiff, and could easily be modified to even more strongly resemble it. Good luck with the build!

FWIW- A comment on stretching a hull made by a very experienced NA: "It seems stretching/scaling questions endlessly fascinate....What if? I was talking about this with [well known wooden boat builder] the other day, his experience equals my own, that stretching almost any boat just makes it better....

Re: Opinions on my version of the Coastal Crusier

I think your layout is extremely clever in eliminating or greatly reducing the constant up/down associated with pilothouse designs. The layout also creates a single large open space rather than segmenting an already relatively compact boat into small separate spaces. The aft head/shower location may...

Re: Give Tahoe 23 a more racing look.

If you can make it work functionally, your proposed new side profile certainly does look fantastic IMHO. The longer bow area that you have in mind makes the boat look very sporty and sleek. Very nice!

Re: A Texan Tubby Tug Build

Your radar mast is very attractive and, most importantly (IMHO), suits the overall look of the boat (ie. it is not too exotic or upscale for the rest of the boat). Your daughter is going to love it!
