    Looks exactly like a Norman Cross 18!

    Have you any reason not to buy the Cross 18 plans, and extend the main hull by adding a 2ft plug, or simply place each frame a couple inches further apart to get the extra 2ft length

    I have always thought the Norman Cross 18 had superb lines, very hard to beat.

    I wouldn't want to use those amas, they are not efficient, a lot of weight and volume up high and little where it would do good. Not as terrible a design for open ocean where a softer ride can be expected, but not much use for the average 18 footer.
