    A few to show scale and headroom, the admiral seen in the cabin in the last shot is 5 foot 4 inches

    You can see shallow fetch to water in thebackground of the pictures which makes it fairly easy to launch and retrieve. The wheels are easy to remove once the boat is afloat. The tubes in the hulls don't seam to cause much disturbance at speed. We were going to make plugs to suit them but it doesn't seem necessary at this point

    Bow shot of hull under construction and cnc cutting bow sections to attach to hull last shot is a bulkhead at rear of cabin headroom increases in hull as you move forward. There is no deck above this area so headroom is around 8 feet in this area of the hull, the height of the cabin top above my head. Note rebates around the edge of bulkheads for tapes. These were on nearly all internal surfaces to enable faster easier fairing during the build.

    Wow, that was a lot of information, thank you! It will take me some time to process! About the sharp portion of the forefoot: Ok, about 2,5 m, was far longer than I thought, based the previous pictures, sounds sufficient to avoid hull slamming. About "I may implement a wide flat chine above the water line forward tapering out slightly aft" would perhaps be like (the front part of) your dinghy design? (although the chine in that case also was for structural reasons?). Also the old brittish sailing designs like Iroquese comes to mind, they had a small step in the front part. About the depth and displacement, thanks for clarification, I mean some part of the boat should touch the water :). About the photo of the rear cabin bulkhead: That is some seriously wide flat bottom, how wide is it, 80 cm? I also notice that the inward side is completely vertical?
