    I added a canoe stern to my wide transomed lil motorsailer, making her 30 feet long. Didn't lose any internal volumn, and faster hull speed because longer WL.She's a trailer sailer, so seldom incursrs dock fees. As for hobbyhorsing? Major cause of pitching is weight in the ends. Try to cram the same stuff in a pinch stern as a fat stern, and she's gonna pitch. IMHO
