But the method limits the shape. It's not a bad shape but it's just one shape and there are many other shapes that work and some may offer improvements in performance over your stock shape. Your constant attack on other boats and the people that own them is tiresome. Be proud of what you have developed and HTFU.
If you check the origamiboats site you will find origami boats of a wide variety of shapes, wide sterns ,narrow sterns ,canoe stern, wide bows, narrow bows, deep deadrise , shallow deadrise, single chines ,multi chines, radiused chines, etc etc. The one shape myth is just that, a myth, began by Michael Kasten who knows so little about the subject that he continues to decree impossible what we have been doing since 1980; perpetuated by those who have little or no understanding of origami boat building and no experience with it ,who have done nothing to educate themselves on the subject .
