    Lovely, though I'd have made a flush deck rather than the trunk. The pilot house looks glorious.

    Nice, but just a few inches too long for my garage.
    There is no rational, logical, or physical description of how free will could exist. It therefore makes no sense to praise or condemn anyone on the grounds they are a free willed self that made one choice but could have chosen something else. There is no evidence that such a situation is possible in our Universe. Demonstrate otherwise and I will be thrilled.

    Looks a bit fat arsed for my taste. Looks hard to provide a sweet run if that stern cabin is to be usable.
    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    There's no accommodation down low aft. I'd need to see the lines to judge.

    I see a double bed at what, a foot above the waterline.

    Draw the section at the aft side of that rectangular double bed, and think about the shape of the rebate. Then consider the buttock lines and the room to fit the engine/gear box.
    Tricky, we do need a lines plan.

    Yes, I can't properly judge without a lines plan.

    Much, much to big for me but attractive for a powerboat.

    More of a river boat me thinks, all that length and not a single sea-going berth. And anyone who has ever slept anywhere near a prop will know that aft berth will only be habitable when its not turning, and the pitch motion of the forward berth pretty much rules that out too. To be fair, it would cross the North sea with only one night at sea, so maybe not a big deal.

    I have to agree with Nick on that ample "arse" being a more than a thing of beauty! More of a fanny than a fan tail! I would imagine that the diagonals are not all that sweet there.
