    I've posted the lines of a 70' 60,000# displacement sailboat hull in the student designer gallery. When I design a fairly light chine hull in Prochine3, with the chine's lowest point just above the DWL, I seem to have to choose between a rather high prismatic or a very sharp bow with a lot of reverse in the waterlines. My question is, is this bow too fine? The hull is meant for offshore cruising.:confused:
