Sounds like a fair suggestion.

If it fits I'll pay you your tenner and publicly apologise for calling you a loudmouth. If not, you give me the tenner and apologise to Leeway. OK?

Leeway, don't go letting me down!

OK, but how about, if it fits, everyone on your forum who called me,,,well called me anything bad, sends me a tenner!

Think of it as compensation for the mental stress, sleepless nights, endless sobbing at my desk etc.

I reckon this should be a public event and whoever loses gets to use a ducking stool off the end of Yarmouth.

A discerning boat builder could use the attached picture to "splash" a copy for us to use!

Mmmmmnn, similar, but as you say, no pad keel, and the deadrise looks shallower.

got any pics of the fwd sections?

Although superficially similar (reverse chine and one spray rail) I think that the differences would be very apparent if the two boats were put side by side.

It's interesting when you start really looking at the hull isn't it?

How many people here know how many spray rails their RIB has? Or whether they are full length? Or whether they run parallel or curve to the bow?

Most people, I suspect, neither know nor care -- and it doesn't matter at all in most cases, so long as the boat performs OK. It might explain why there is a tendency to think that they are all the same though.

How hulls are designed, and why design decisions are made, is something that doesn't often get a lot of coverage. I quite often find myself looking at things like spray rails and wonder whether they are a conscious design decision, for a methodically thought out reason, or whether they have just been out in because the designer likes the look of them.

I think it's fair also to say, that for sub 40knt craft, the rails are less important.
for this, the deadrise, amount of warp, and most importantly, ballance of setup
