Re: Bob Perry's take on Wolfenzee's dream boat

Bob,

I completely understand what you are suggesting. Your suggestions are not all that dissimilar to some of the ideas that I had been considering but put aside our of wanting to stay as close to Wolf's orginal design as possible.

I too had been concerned about the bulb reducing the span of the keel foil. I can certainly flatten the bulb should we chose to retain it. In that way, we retain the endplate effect without losing as much span.

I see the first design as perhaps the tweaked version, and now we are moving closer to the 'Caraciture' version......I like this part.

And yes, believe it or not this is fun.
