    The bow and the stern look like two totally different styles.... I think it needs a pointy bow instead

    Hello, Capt J
    I posted more photos, I tried to not let the very pointy bow because the rivers where I thought this type of boat was used would not have many waves, pointy bow are good for cutting wave, right?

    forgive my bad english

    I'm sorry but I had the same thoughts as Capt J. It honestly looks almost like two different boats put together. Now that's just a personal view and it's all subjective so others might feel entirely different about it.

    actually i posted in the community for this, different opinions. but what part do you believe that more out of context? would be the structure at the stern?

    I also was confused between which style you were looking for, the stern needs some more work to be usable.

    Flipper is already a brand name for a Swedish boat from Flipper Marin. I almost bought one as a river/canal cruiser.

    Is very difficult to give a name for boats these days hahahha!
    in relation to stern, I already had my doubts but was more in relation to structure that I put it, for me it was disproportionate. I do not know if that's what you guys are talking about or is the hull at the stern is too thin or everything hahaha!

    The trouble with computer renderings is that they likes straight lines. Almost all yachts are curved in some way. The lines bend and twist in a way that is pleasing to the eye.

    Take the humble stern of a lobsterboat. The tumblehome is a key part of the beauty of the boat. Not one straight line, there are curves everywhere.

    These are just some things I enjoy from a classic design.

    thank you! I now understand what you meant. I live in the Amazon region in Brazil, wooden boats are very common here, I like the appearance of the wood for the boat but here the vessels are more focused for cargo and passengers, there is no much boats related for recreation.
    I am already looking here in the forum and has a lot to learn and actually already realized that I need to improve a lot but it is encouraging to know that there is this forum, already being useful for me.
    * this is the kind of boat that we have here
