    The article in the link has lines and analysis for fourteen peapod designs. A Gallery of Peapod Lines https://www.woodenboat.com/gallery-peapod-lines Peapods are double ended, round bottom traditional boats from Maine, usually between 13 feet and 16 feet in overall length. Many were used for lobstering, rowing between traps. I have lines and data for another eleven designs, and am also doing some additional analysis. In addition comparisons are being made with dories of similar size.
