What is it about canoe-stern'd boats that they always seem to have faux planking on fiberglass hulls?
Not that there is anything wrong with that, in addition to the funky trunk, which makes it hard to install junk, like ladders and davits, when you want to go for a dunk.

not all double enders have to have old fasion design details or a full keel, the esprit 37 has always been favorite of mine,

Sounds like the general consensus is that choosing a double ender is choosing form over function, in most cases.

There are some quite nice 'quirks' of advantage in the classic canoe stern: You cant overload the lazarette with an immense amount of heavy and needless junk ... thus keeping the stern 'light'; you can heel the boat over almost onto it beam ends and have hardly any development of adverse helm due to the typical symmetric hull form. ;-)

These boats are 'well mannered & easy pleasure' to sail.

Thanks for the kind words.
I just blogged the story of the Lafitte 44.
I hope you will visit the blog. It is an interesting story of an interesting boat.

Plank lines:
Plank lines are a West Coast thang. When I worked at Carter's office Chuck Paine could not belive I'd design planking lines into the hull mold. "A true yacht does not show it's plank lines." Well, where I came from we had a rich heritage of workboats whose lines were enhanced by the harmnonious sweep of the planking lines and many of my earkly boats took advantage of that. They make mold maintainence a nightmare.

The T37 always looks best in an exotic location, like up a river deep in Borneo!

Wow...not many production boats can claim to have been in Borneo!

I do like the plank lines. But it's ironic that we wood boat owners take pride in smooth hulls, while classic styled glass boats show off the imaginary planks.
