Re: Pros and cons of steel sailboats

Hull curvature, along with at the ends, the lines will literally be farther apart due to the hull shape. Hence why the ends in the photos look like they are curved. My boat, while not a double ender, much less a BP boat design, has some similar feelings at the ends on the boot stripes. IT is even more apparent with a flat transom vs a double ended boat!
