    I have project to build a 7.00m (23 feet) fiberglass boat.

    Light boat under 1200Kg
    width 2,60m (8 feet 6 inche) max (trailer)
    RIB philosophy (low flatboard, 50cm (20 inches) height/ 40 cm (16 inch) width rigid and foamed Buoyancy tubes )
    Minimum top speed 50 kmh
    Cruising speed 30 kmh
    Planing over 25 kmh
    Very seaworthy hull (deep V for smooth ride in medium rough sea)
    Very small and low top cab in front

    I interesting by a 45 degres front and 30 degres rear V angle (20 cm width flat at the rear) hull. Is it navigable? The hull will be 1,80m (5 feet 11 inches) width plus the tubes

    This hull is for the last 5,50m (18 feet) but I dont know how to finish the first 1,50 m (59 inches)of the hull in front of the boat. I'm intersting by a seaworthy design. Does some body have idea?

    PS Sorry for the bad english, I'm a french speaking person.
