When it rolls under into the "pinch" at the stern of your boat, doesn't it look thinner when viewed from the side? The boot top on my quarter tonner had to be nearly twice as wide there as forward to look the same width. On my Columbia, with its tapering overhang it is nearly three times as wide there.

I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
