    Well, the desing in not really apealling. It is boxy and the lines don't flow. Also, the multichine design will produce a fair amount of material waste. Your definition of sit on top is tailored to advertising your product. Also, the link is an offer to invest, which should be posted in a different section of the forum

    The hull shape and lines have a specific purpose. Like any design, there are trade offs.

    If the link is not appropriate I'll trust the mods or admin to move or delete the thread as required.

    What are you getting as tradeoff of an ugly design that wastes a lot of material?
