Maurizio,
Merry Christmas, I'm glad to see the new hull is coming along so well. You work so quickly it surprises us guys who have to drink allot of beer and think about changes for weeks, before moving.
She looks great. I hope you get the ride you want from your new hull.
Aloha,

I have to say, this is a great post!!

I would have never thought of designing my own stitch and glue boat then built it and hope that it came out as such a wonderful looking boat.

Maurizio, you make a beautiful boat.

I for one am even more inspired to complete my project and start the next one.

I hope your new hull gives you the performance your looking for and more.

Very nice.

I like how it is strong and yet simply designed, plus it looks great.

I can't wait to hear about how it preforms after the modifications you made.
I hope that it is better than you expect.

ciao
finally the new launching!
the first test has been performed in inside waters; shortly I will try S. Lucia in water of sea.
My first impressions are of greater stability in bend
The crossing on the waves is softer
Maximum speed is not decreased.

I told my wife we needed a three-car garage for my projects...she told me to ask her for permission next time before I buy a house.
