    I am not an expert on skiff design,but I do sail at a club where skiffs are present.Without some knowledge of the size of the rig the boat is intended to have,it is a little difficult to draw firm conclusions.My initial thought is that the boat seems to have quite a lot of wetted area but has a shape that ought to generate a good deal of lift at planing speeds.What would the typical weather conditions be like at the venue the boat is likely to sail at?

    I saw the plan in the other thread and it looks interesting. But you need to show some numbers-see PI's numbers in the other thread-they are the most critical for analyzing and comparing skiff performance.
