Larry-that has to be one of your better Photoshop efforts. That combo makes a surprisingly good looking boat. With just a bit more tweaking to the cabin, you could have a real winner there.

Y'know how when you buy a different car you never really paid any attention to and now see them everywhere?

Well, since the Spy taught me the new, highly nautical term, "droopy bow," they're like bloody rabbits.

The very day after I learned-the-term, first thing I noticed about this Sea Ray...droopy bow. Then I got to thinking about other Sea Rays and by golly this 34 I had...droopy bow.

I'll not ever look at Sea Rays the same.

Yup,
The reverse sheer on many of the SeaRay's is almost silly looking at rest but they look fine at speed. And the helmsman has a good chance for a good view.

Marty,
The LN is a handsome boat to be sure and I considered them when I was shopping for another boat. Does the wheelhouse sole follow the highly ramped up deck line? If so I would't like that at all. Always in it's favor (if one is looking for a FD boat the LN is the real deal ... a 100% FD hull. Very efficient. But only a fair design for handling and manners in the nasty ..IMO. Their BMW engines put me off .. mostly because I don't know much about them. I think I saw one w a 4cyl Cummins though.

Steve,
Panope looks like she's got a bit of a hooked sheer slightly reversed well fwd but in the second broadside photo there's no sign of it. Pictures are tricky.

Eric , I've never been aboard an LNVT but any picture that I've ever seen show the sole to be level ( if level is a nautical term ) .

"Hog Backed" is the term I learned from my dad. Part time navel architect in 1960's. Not sure if that was his term or in general use back then in New England. Seems I heard others use it?? I do know that I would not want to be in any truly rough seas with that hull design! Its snout simply points in the wrong entry direction for hitting waves. Physics is physics - LOL

Art,
A hogged keel is a standard boating expression. Happends to wood boats put away wet and blocked up light on the ends or even quicker and to a greater degree w blocking not carried far enough into the ends. A hogged keel is almost always w boat upright and keel high amidships and low at the ends.

A hogged keel is a damaged keel so just refering to a curve on a boat may not be a propper use of the expression but it may comunicate nonetheless.

Boats w hogged keels don't handle well and are even dangerous in heavy seas. On the other hand a sagging keel could even be an advantage. I just recently bought an aluminum canoe that had a gogged keel caused by mechanical abuse. I used my handyman jack and garage door header (to push on) and straighted the bottom out. It was time consuming and actually I gave the canoe some rocker. Paddeled it two days ago and it paddles very well. I'm very pleased w it. Another one of my modifications that turned out well.

Great thread!

The sheer of a boat seems be be somewhat related to perspective. Kokanee has a broken sheer line at deck level, but also has a rub rail accentuating the line of a lower unbroken sheer line. Either one may be more prominent depending on angle and light.

And here's another pic of the same hull without the broken sheer line.
