I don't think Phils or Healhustlers boats are ugly. I like them for different reasons. Roughwaters have good lines, somewhat blocky but it gives them character.
The Manatees are not trying to be " everything to all people". The appeal of these boats are lots of interior room and low horsepower requirements. Who couldn't imagine themselves holed up in a quiet cove at anchor?

I found the picture and some innormation on ART - anti rolling tank.

It was mounted on top of the pilot house, 12 ft X 4 ft X 16" with 1500 lbs of water.

Looks simple, so wondering why more boats do not have an ART?

Phil - Maybe it's my puter... but, I can't open your "ART" link. With acronym ART - Can't be all bad!

I got the attachment to open but its not clear enough to read.

I don't mind a bit of a mix in style lines as long as there is a purpose to it. I'm a big fan of style by functionality. My favourite boat on TF would probably be your Coot, Mark. To me - It has complete purpose in its form.

Your Manatee doesn't sit as well with me, healhustler, but its not the mix of lines. It just seems a bit overinflated. What air pressure are you running in your cabin?

I am a fan of Diesel Ducks though. There functionality is obvious. My boat has some vague similarities in overall looks, although not in quality of design/build.

LOLROF: Great analogy, AusCan. The air pressure is dependent on how many guests I have at the moment.
