    OK, it says on p.69, "No keel", that is why you say it is "not suitable" ? The keel in the boat illustrated seems to have more to do with protecting the drives, as that part will likely ground first, than a necessity to keep the boat on track, judging by the underwater lines.

    Doubt it is a student project, if he is really envisaging installing such drive(s), he should consult direct with Volvo about it, and have an accurate drawing of his boat to show them.

    The buttocks would be straight, but not parallel. The skeg certainly is needed, whether it cruels the performance of those drives, in turns at least, Volvo is best placed to assess, based on their experience.
