  2. Check out it is Steve Dachew's website with extreme detail as to why this design looks the way it does, very interesting process to read through :)
  3. Thanks for the lead on that Barry. Enjoyed the article. :)
  4. Your quite welcome. I have been following development through the web site, found the process decisions interesting. I am not associated with the designer or broker in any way. Daschew is expandig the troller (not trawler) idea a bit in my opinion, based on sail hull design..glad you enjoyed it. :)

    For the others interested: Once at the home page click on the Daschew Offshore tab at the top, it will get you to the extensive discussion on the design process.
