65177Presto-style isometric (was Re: Bolger on sharpies)
- Jan 4, 2011What distinguishes the Presto type from other sharpies before its time is the well rounded chine. This should reduce or eliminate the problem of chine eddying, as well as the generous length to beam ratio. Learned from guru PB, as well as my own experience with hard chine kayaks mostly.
Might be accomplished with thick wood strip at the chines in a ply boat. Haven't seen it done though.
