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.

Well I guess it has been awhile. I just finished the flotation foam in the bilge. It was something I was going back and forth on for a long time but in the end decided to do put it in. I built boxes out of pvc boards, put empty gallon jugs in then poured the foam in. I did it this way so the foam is not touching the wood but I could maximize the space I had. The jugs are so I didn’t need as much foam. It’s not pretty but it should work. I have about 1500lbs of flotation in the bilge and I should be able to get 1000 more elsewhere in the boat. Finally time for the floor.
