models of this exaggerated long dory and a 'per plans' Gloucester
Gull. Comparing the two: Most notable I see that mine has more
curvy-ness, in the bottom (as the GGull has nearly a flat bottom), and
also in the sheerline. Speed isn't everything, (considering that
boats are also 'sculptures' of a sort.) Big long swoopy sheerlines
What I am thinking of is a 'pretty' boat to launch through the surf
near my home, and the higher ends from that exaggerated curvature, I
think, might be an improvement. Plus, it needs to be light weight
enough to drag a hundred yards from the car to the water.
