      I may section the boat also and add 5 feet. That's after I settle on
      a bow design. There are so many boats to sift through it's been very
      rewarding reading. BTW the Shivaree series is a possible boat,
      sometime or never the name. I haven't made a short list of Atkin
      designs, that's why I lurk.

      I haven't seen the lines for slicer, but I assume from the one photo

      sort of structure above the gunwales.
