1956Re: [AtkinBoats] Testing Billy Atkin's "Shoals Runner"
- May 27, 2008It must be remembered the tunnel hull boats are
shallow draft boats, so they would have to be compared
to another equal shallow draft boat.
By Atkin's calculation a non tunnel hull Seabright
Skiff like Happy Clam performs better than a tunnel
hull Seabright Skiff
But if the traditional boat runs aground then the
tunnel hull wins.
