    hello everyone I appologise for not posting more often.

    I build a boat called the UFO layout boat. it can be seen here. www.waterfowl-works.com.

    Now I am working on a larger 2 man model that will be aproximately 12ft long and saround 78" wide. Now the trick is this I need to create a planing hull yet it has to set level on the chine when not being towed. This is not for propulsion and needs to be very low profile. No more than 8" above the water line. So I must incorperate a planing hull and a hull that will recess to level the chine when loaded with 2 people. aproximately 500lbs.

    Just not sure exactly how to create what I need, Any ideas or thoughts from anyone?

    At first I thought..."Now why would anyone want to build a boat that cant be seen?" Then I went to your picture page and I see its a duck hunting boat.
