I designed it in High School. I was lobstering in a 12 foot skiff and it was time to make a move. Plan A was to build the skiff and use it as a plug to build more. Plan B was a used 30 Repco with a 4 cylinder Iveco diesel. I ended up going with plan C and joining the Navy. I still have my designs on graft paper that I did in High School. Even have a girls number written on the back.
As a former trucker I measure a boat at it's widest point because when trailered that's what the police will do. My little JC is 10'4" over the rubrails about 1/3 back from the bow. That's why when you look at Boats and Harbors showing "Truckable Tugs" by Progressive and Mustang they are concerned with the widest beam for legal highway width. You can usually get away with 10' or so because trucks are up to 102" and boats taper in so much at the transom they only look 8'6" but much more than that starts to look wide.
Mine only travels about 30 miles a year on the road but like a lot of smaller boats it does look big trailered.
