Hum. . . .need more freeboard. . . . .maybe convex sheer line contour. . . .Interesting!!! Still want to see the bow turn up 4' above the water line (right where it kinks above that top chine). Althought, the 60 to 12 deadrise configuration is becoming popular, I'd push the skeg a little deeper. Ever wonder what would happen if you put a boulbus configuration on the front section of a skeg??? Maybe I take that back about the sheer line, I think I like it.....ever think about using excessive sheer for the rail, or to incorporate the height of the rail; and not use a rail? Got a house for that big O'l hull???
