Hi Bob, I hope I have this right. I was talking to one of the designers at Rockport Marine, and he sounded like little actual design work was done.

The owner came with the idea and some very talented craftsmen at RM worked with him and this is the result.

Here's the blog on their website.

Faster, the galley went into the dumpster(in a manner of speaking) when they cut that area out and built the extended cockpit.

The owner was serious, he wanted a daysailer, not a cruising boat, for his large extended family. He and wanted clean open decks and a large cockpit to bring them along and maybe do a little fun racing.

He wanted space for coolers.
