A new way of fishing (for me)

See how the stern is turned up for good disp hull form in the last pic? That's basically what I've wanted to do to a NT, GB or other basic trawler.

Don't read too much into the design of the rafts, Eric.* The ends are turned up to help prevent water from slopping up onto the platform when going forward or backwards and to make it easier to slide the boats up onto the shore either bow first or stern first.* I don't think anypone had any sort of hull efficiency idea in mind when they designed the things some 2000 years ago :-)
