    A friend posted this pic online elsewhere, but didn't know the name of the style boat. It appears similar to a slipper launch, but the fore is considerably longer. Anyone have any idea what this boat is?[​IMG]

    Huh - call THAT a slipper launch ?

    Of course, the definition of a slipper launch is fairly vague!

    LOL Well, I have to admit it doesn't even come close to your slipper launch.
