Wooden version of a Frauscher Sport boat

I posted a question about a modern wooden runabout a while back when I was thinking I would have time to build a new boat and am really itchy to get things going. I am an experienced builder and need a design that could be cold molded with ply or strip or any combination but, it should have a stepped hull and a design similar to a VanDutch or Frauscher boat. I love the plum bow, the integrated anchor and the layout of the Frauscher especially and think this boat could be built in a cold molded fashion in an 18 -22' length.
I have a CNC machine, plenty of mahogany in stock and will have room to do the job in a few months. The plywood or cedar strips method is also readily available. All I need is a good lines drawing, a table of offsets and some preliminary testing via computer program to get the ball rolling.

Ya, I could go the route of learning another new design program but, why not employ some real professionals.

Anyone out there with comments?

JFH, thank you for your posting. I pulled up the Frauscher site and I love their Bow
design to-so much so that I changed my plans to incorporate it on my plans which I will post soon.

Triple Seven

I also found a nice platform to work with on a few sites.
One is called the Triple 7.

Another is the Open Delta

Both have a similar look on the profile. I know I can do this in wood composite.
Walk out transom with a bimini for sun and some creature comforts with just enough wood showing on trim and some high tech flooring.
