Very interested in this, following. kinda wanna built one of these myself now that Ive seen it, lol! :D
Axis, I would go for it. Seeing something come together that you designed is amazing, the build is just as fun as the design process.
I wanted something for me that is original.....all these boat designs began on paper somewhere,this one just begins with me.
I can change aspects as I build and I am not afraid to try unconventional methods. Some people will like what your doing and some wont, at he end of the day the boat will look and perform how I want it to.
Check out the build section scream and fly forum, home made tunnel finally building.....primary reason I started mine.

Venting the hull....traps turbulent air, less drag while helping lift the hull.
