    Having a senior's moment....pretty sure there is a specific term for a squared off bluff bow, like on a Mirror dinghy, and it's not scow bow...might start with G but grey cells are failing...

    A garvey hull would curve up continuously from the bottom to somewhere considerably above the waterline at the bow.

    The mirror dinghy is a pram.
