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

That's a good observation Jeff and I think it comes from the designer trying to push volume into the ends of a skinny boat, bow and stern. The stern sections on the SLIVER project are very U shaped and not V shaped. The inspiration for the bow sections on the SLIVER came from Laurie Davidson's AC boat BLACK MAGIC. I did some work for Laurie during the previous AC and I was lucky enough to get a set of lines for BLACK MAGIC. The bow sections are also very U shaped.
