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

Really appreciate the education. First,I love double enders. Owned one of yours Bob and one of another gentleman. Sorry for my misconception as I thought in general narrow boats go well to windward but not as well DDW. Thought relatively flat run aft and wide as possible was the ticket. Hence the current chined boats. Low wetted surface when heeled but flat run when running. Somehow the chined boats don't look right to me but I know that's stupid. Know my current boat squats a bit when we are over 8kts. But then settles in with no further squatting. Seems the same up to11kts(fastest we've gone so far). Thought you need to have more displacement ( boat in the water) to level off the downward force. Thought that was easier to achieve without having much overhang on square transom vessel. My bad.
