    I was checking out the plans at:Giving her a bit of a V bottom, and a bit wider cockpit, and she already becomes looking like Grandpa's boat I believe . . :)
    Best check out the whole Power Boat section there I think . . :cool:
    P.S.
    Maybe she also could handle, and be ameliorated by, a ± 18 % length stretch by respacing the station molds, and also about 12 % side raising, as the original L 8' 1" x B 3' 6" (L 2.46 m x B 1.07 m) is optimized for kids weighing only 100 to 150 lbs (45 - 68 kg).​

    Meant is only a modest V-bottom entry1 there, by cutting a dart2 out of the front of the bottom panel, this requires some lofting.

    1 meaning going to flat, or near flat, towards the transom.

    2 the cut out dart is pulled together during the build and so becomes the V-bottom entry.
