You should like those sites.

I really like the Atkin boats but do'nt know if I have the energy or the time to build the ones I like. I want a big medium speed OB. Is the San Juan a typical warped V bottom design?

I am on BDN but not on Atkin group.

The San Juan is ply on frame.It does have some curves in the hull,but I don't know if I would call it warped hull in the traditional sense.It is a displacement cruiser so it has rounded chines with a slight rocker built in.The bow has a V entry but from there back it flattens out.I attached a pic from Spira's FB site.I hope this kind of shows how the bow has a slight bend to it.It's very subtle on there.
