recent ideas of what is "good". The blunter Tennessee bow might not
cut as cleanly through choppy water as the twisted panel. My guess
would be these boats all would take about the same amount of time to
build. (variables+/-, of course, but building time correlates closely
with total displacement, and these three boats have nearly identical
Here are some 3D renderings of Tennessee.
I will try to put up isometric renderings of the Topaz later...
