514Re: Most Efficient Hull??
- Jan 17, 2005Leo
I'd have to agree with John T. that a Double ender like Jabberwock
would be the most efficient also the most seaworthy. Double enders are
very dry in rough weather. I gave serious thought to getting plans for
Jabberwock but ended up buying plans for Marth Green instead because
in has full standing head room and is a boat with the Atkins used
often and liked very much.
