    So, Sleek, if you wan to build a powerboat with a catboat bow in stitch and goo, that might be a lot easier than doing a sailboat that way. The deep v forward that is required to keep the radius of the turn of the bilge forward buildable works out better on a powerboat. Here's what I came up with, just noodling around on Delftship:

    A bit like this quick sketch

    I finally found a (crappy) image of the actual boat as built.

    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    Not very. She was quite beamy and the rise was only about 10 degrees at midships, flattening completely at the round stern.

    How thick was the ply, and how big was the boat?
