I love it when design and engineering take a cue from nature. Good stuff Bob!

I get the idea that short overhangs increase volume, speed and efficiency if done correctly, but I don't want to sail an ugly boat even if it is fast and roomy for her LOA. I need a bit of salty overhang so I have something stare back at when it's time to leave the boat and head off to work.
