you know i was looking at Man O war and couldn't see the rails i wonder if any one has knowledge of who fisnished the boat would like to pick his brains It seems like most of the CB's have rails my Mitchel Cove did and I think they helped the performance but I'm inclined to not use them on the Holland
Man O War doesn't have a problem getting its bow out of the water. I think it has 800hp, which helps a little bit. Nice looking boat.
Go with a hard chine boat and lifting rails will be a thing of the past, J/K. I'm in Glen's camp, I wouldn't put lifting rails on my own boat. I'm of the opinion that if a boat needs lifting rails bolted onto it to perform better, than just mold the rails into the hull mold, or make a hard chine like a Wesmac or a soft/hard chine like the 37' Duffy.
