    Hey, your avater is still the same on the last post....went to the site, nice boat, I like the fact that it's an OB, easy maintenance, weatherization. I also like the lines and being out of the weather on a boat that size with a planning hull. Hope your perfect boat works out for you!

    Put more flare in the sides and more rocker in the bow if you'd like a better and drier boat. Some taper aft would also make it handle better. There's as much to not like about that set of shapes as there are to enjoy.

    This is what he's talking about...

    I can almost feel the waves slapping up against the bow and feel the water in my face. I'd change the bow.

    I guess if they're popular, it must not be as bad it would seem.

    Have you also seen

    their mission statement :)

    "Lady Bug Boats are constructed along the lines of the original Brockway Skiff. Lady Bug Boats, however, are built using modern materials and technology for a more durable hull and finish. Lady Bug Boats are designed and constructed to withstand the rough service and to meet the demands of the commercial fisherman. "

    It means it looks too blunt at the bow (to me), but it ought to work fine.
