@chortle it runs well but so little flare that its a little wet. I bet it weighs 130 or so. Very stable for a hard bottom with a little V to it. Get lots of comments- its so wide its a little confusing to the eye but the sheer makes up for it I think.

Thank you sir! If you go back to the start of this whole thread you will see that I completely eyeballed it in the least conventional method possible lol!

Okay, she looks great, so for the next one.....maybe add some Carolina flare and some lifting strakes.....A boatbuilders task is never done! Kaizen!!!
