Thanks all for the encouragement to stay! I'm not sure if I'll be modifying the Sneakeasy design or modifying the V-bottom design to use Bolger construction methods, but either will use Bolger/Sneakeasy concepts. Ultimately it will depend on whether I decide to go with an inboard or just take the easier way out and build an outboard model.
