    I'd rather be competitive w/junk I built in my garage than win w/stuff I bought.


    I refuse to allow common sense to interfere w/my boat buying decisions.

    Outer most chines were filled for about 2 feet fromthe transom, lots of voids. Continued this up to about 4 feet fromth etransom as thi sis the primary running surface. Will allow th ecore to lay smoothly over these chines for better support and stiffness. Inner chines will have stringers ontop of them, Should provide a nice even running surface.
