    I am rebuilding the hull for the little flat commuter in my gallery...

    Lost it to a HD crash - idea is a constant station and deadrise deep vee garvey type hull so I can mount pusher bars and lights on the bow station - constant vee is at 20 degrees - side panel just under the plumb sheer would be the only panel that is not of a constant angle due to the pulling off of the chine...

    Right - it is butt ugly to my eye - but it is purposeful looking - and it would prove a screaming fast build in aluminum...

    Looks like a sound little boat. I have built, repaired and ridden in a few boats similar to this and they have always performed well. Yes they are ugly. But functional. Whats the OAL and beam?
