I was very impressed w the first "deep Vee" boat/hull designed by Raymond Hunt.
It was named "Moppie" and won the Miami-Nassu offshore powerboat race in 1961.
The drag from the high deadrise "deep V" increased fuel consumption mucho. I set about to design a boat that had the soft riding characteristics w/o the fuel burn penalties. This was the result. All plywood and built light. 90% of the hull was 3/8ths Canadian marine Plywood. Cabin was 1/4" and glass was poly.
28' X 9'2". Power was a 55hp Johnson 3cyl OB.
The other pics are of the model I built from bulsa wood in college.
Built the boat in the Queen Charolette Is. in 71. My teaching job at Masset went poof so I struck out for Juneau.
Built the cabin in Juneau and went to Glacier Bay, Endicott Arm including Ford's terror and many other local places.
She was a good boat w wonderful directional stability and turned almost level. Unlike my current OB boat. She had one big flaw. Her wonderful performance went So when loaded anything but real light. I carried an 11" pitch prop for long runs needing lots of fuel and switched on the run to her normal prop of 13" pitch.
She was actually a multi-hull. Somewhere between a trimaran and a Cathedrial hull. Due to the hull shape she was plenty strong enough for a structure including only one frame.
