- I have been talking to Karl Stambaugh at Chesapeak Marine Design(email)
about a redwing 21. I was interested in a deadrise bottom design that he
offered at one time. Interesting, he sent me a discussion or proposal of
his, in which he says that a box keel has the same effect on a flat
bottm or rockered flat bottom boat as deadrise(moderate V). He makes a
good case for it and I bought the plans. In thinking about it, I
realized I am looking at 35 or 40 sheets of half inch ply etc. About $50
per sheet for meranti, sooo I decided to try the concept on a work skiff
with about 15 sheets of ply. I think I can just deepen the shoe( 4-6
inches) and tapper at the stern, to see if it works. In "BWAOM" PCB kind
of eludes to a cutwater on the Skiff. Anybody seen one of these or have
any ideas? Clyde
