sorry for this delayed response. I believe you've got it correct, but
I definately recall reading Bolger, somewhere, writing that it was
more important forward than aft. He said the eddies from the chines up
front would cause drag all along the hull. ( The trouble with
understanding this is he also writes that the AS19 bow should be more
ONLY for flat-bottom sharpies.
