parapeligic. He used it out in the Columbia River Delta in Oregon and
claimed it was very seaworthy in up to four foot waves, if memory
serves. (Which it doesn't actually:-)
The write up he did may be in the files under "CSD Newsletters". What
were you wondering about a short chop? That is pounded? Or created a
lot of spray? I believe it would pound at low speeds but that it
planes very easily.
It would seem to a really nice fishing boat in sheltered waters. I
know others have been built. Maybe a builder will show up. Otherwise
send a query to PCB&F. Was the orignal concept in SBJ or MAIB? Where
di you hear about it Marvin?
