: John,
: A very interesting shape. What I like most is seeing the scratches on the
: bottom of your boat. It means she has been some where. :) Before ya go
: with this as a finalized shape ya might want to try two smaller skegs on
: either the bottom or rear of your boat. In having two you could have the
: same surface area but not as deep. this would lower your draft.

: My thought would be go down to the pond with several ideas in foam try and
: tweak and figure out which one ya like best. Personally I think your on to
: something and the shape your choosing fits in behind what what is in front
: of it. So its not going top be as big a rock collector as ya might think


Thanks Russ,

Glad to see you back. I hope your lungs are getting better. You were very good on Public Radio.

I have lots of question on fixing scratches that I will ask later.

Take care of yourself.
