Very very nice boat though.

Custom boats designed by a good architect are usually exciting.


Not that trim tabs for sure don't have a part in the attitude of this hull to water surface... But, back when trim tabs were not used much at all...That's the angle-to-water a well designed planing or semi-planing hull rode when weight was distributed correctly and their traveling at considerable speed.

Boats whose hull/distributed-weight designs lend to bow in the air and ass deep in the water are inefficiently pushing water with their rear 1/3 bottom surface rather than simply "skimming" across top of water... such as this beaut pictured here appears to be doing... in a fine manor I might ad!
