can anyone explain "Cold-molded-hull floors/ metal strap floors" and how it would pertain to a runabout or garwood speedster type build? i read the section in the book like 3 times, but am left a little lost...

so from what i see, this is not really to be applied to speed boats or non sail boats...

Generally, yes, most common in sail, usually of certain hull shapes.
