As I recall from the magazine articles about it, the add-on chine is not very large in terms of width. All it does is square off the round corner of the original chine. I don't recall it sticking out any beyond the side of the hull. So while it adds some underbody area, it did not appear to be a lot. Just enough to pick up the stern a little at speed.

Look to say BL are bad is just not justified, having said that I don't think anyone can deny they have a soso reputation.

That rep will not change.

I was boating as kid on LI years ago and the rep was there then.

It just means an informed buyer can get a good boat at good price, but at the same time be aware if you thereafter try to sell it that rep and "pushback" by buyer will exist.
