Don't give up the day job!

I could be wrong but everybody is showing pics of the transom (i think possibly because there arent others of the leeway hull- as far as ive seen) but cant the hull be completely different from there on?

This really sums up why the whole case of splashing is so offensive to Designers.

I work as a designer, mainly on planing hulls and yes every spray rail - every feature, every dimension is thought about and is there for a reason.

Someone who has splashed a hull has not gone through that process or is not capable of going through that process so can hardly start to call such a craft their own design.

How many variables can you have on a deep V hull of a certain length and beam?

Surely it is a case of someone trying to reinvent the wheel?

I would have thought that one reason for so many similar hulls is down to modern CAD programs - in a similar way so many modern cars look the same as they have been styled in the wind tunnel.
