Lets try this again. In the current issue of WB, 159/115, there is an ad by Covey Boat Works showing a photo of SUMMER KYLE designed by Dave Gerr. This boat has a composite bow with a horizontal splitter having a vertical leading edge resembling a very fine angled sharpie bow extending downward from the peak of, and forward from the lower part of a conventional flared bow. The US Navy has incorporated this design in thier newest oilers. Anybody knowledgable about this? Anybody seen tech papers on this?
