Thanks again Roberta, Billy, and Carl. Ken I hope it's a good ocean boat cause that's where I plan on using it the most. :P Below the water line it's shaped like a Carolina boat and with the changes I made the top sides are close to the shape of their's. If you go back to page 14 you can see a pic of the sheet

That's just awesome.
You got a lot more of what I call a 'salt water bow'…….. A big generous bow
You need that in blue water, I have used all of mine, and could at times used some more.
I've had green water cutting all the way up to breasthook, stuff the bow into the back side of a following sea, and it throws all the coolers, tackle boxes and crap up front. Slams yourself into the helm, too!
You know that spray rail on the chine, to throw water out & away?
My rub rail at the sheer has done the same thing at times!!
You will like that carolina flair.
Oak is over rated, everything about it takes extra time; then it warps, splits or checks !!! :roll:
