    The more the windows are slanted the faster the boat goes.

    The bow and stern lights only add to the confusion here :rolleyes:

    I'm hoping this is a photo shop job. :D

    Maybe one of those Your A Peein' designers had a go with her? :eek:

    The description says someone had it custom built to look like that. It sure isn't one of their normal ones.

    Regardless of the facts, it's still fun to make fun of it!

    Yup, a custom built eastern boat.
    Real Canadian Rosboroughs never looked like that unless the owner asked for it.
    Sounds like this was a custom job.
    I think eastern has messed with the mold now too, and not in a great way from what I saw last Feb. at the Boat Show in Boston... Changed the keel, more than just a bit. I liked it the way it was, had more purchase in the water. Now they feathered it out and shortened it. I would bet (don't know for sure) that the old keel made it a better sea-boat.

    Even look at the layout it's twelve pounds of shit in a ten pound bag. $135k LOL - you can buy a lot of boat for that especially one without an egg-beater.

    I wouldn't sell a Cuttyhunk hull to someone that showed me that sketch. Reputation is more important than $$$. "at least in my book"

    I totally agree! As a retired custom home builder I turned down many a job because I wouldn't put my name in front of an Ugly Duckling, even though it was Their Dream Home. Roy
