I believe what you may have is a 1980 South Coast Explorer 21..
Well done, JRP... I had no luck but I was looking for a SouthCoast 20...

The higher bow sections will keep the boat a bit dryer in chop, that's true.. but it's mostly a styling thing, and whether or not you like "the look". Earlier boats generally had deeper curves on sheerlines, the classic C&Cs always had (to my eye) a "pretty" sheer line, at least up to the late 80s. Others, like the SC27 had a distinct reverse sheer which has never looked "right" to me. And the the east coast Dory can take things to an extreme...

So there's some real advantage, if you like the side view, so much the better!
