S&G: Humpdeck (Room for Feet) *PIC*

I just finished building my new design, the Black Skimmer, a low volume Greenland style racer and roller. Having room in a low volume kayak for my size 12 feet has been an issue, so I worked out a deck design that turned out pretty good. I still have a low masik but room for my feet to be vertical and in the center, which really helps with the forward stroke. The cockpit is ocean style, so my knees are tucked forward of the cockpit rim. I'll take more photos and provide more info about the new design at a later date.
