Never heard of Lang boats but the boat in the pic is very unusual. She has a very hollow forfoot and a very wide chine amidships and very slab sided topsides midships to aft. The slab side is not very attractive but other lines are very nice. The very wide chines should give her good initial stability depending on beam. Probably has soft chines. I'm having a little trouble relating to the Phil Bolger connection. There's both a John Atkin and Phil Bolger design that looks a bit like this but they lack the wide chine amidships.

Personally I think straight lines on a boat re the chines, topsides or gunwale/sheer is to be avoided .. both for appearence and function.
