Work boats were more often clinker built as it as an easier and cheaper construction. The smooth hull of a carvel hull is more costly but would have less wetted surface and move through the water more easily. Seems to me to make no sense to mold in a clinker appearance in a fiberglass hull unless you are enamored by the look. Each to his own. Some men like blondes, I like jet black hair.

Check out this beast of a double-ender:



If it weren't for the booms and cockpit, you could easily envision it headed in either direction.

All canoe stern boats are double enders, but not all double enders are canoe sterns. How's that for a start?

I'm sure Bob can answer with more authority than myself, but I've always thought of canoe sterns as just one type of double ender. For example, the Baba 30 looks to my eyes as clearly having a canoe stern, but the Westsail 32 not so much (although still a double ender).

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.
