more easy if you can tolerate 'work boat' finishing. (As sanding a
big boat smooth takes a lot of time due to greater surface area.)

designed for crew displacement, and if it was not filled up with crew
it would ride higher on that center sponson. And riding high while
upright, as when rowing, it would have a tipping quality from the
center sponson to the side 'seat' floatation if the crew shifted to
one side. This would be a disconcerting feeling, but not much to
worry about. It would be stable when sailed leaned over like
intended. Full up with crew weight it would feel more stable I think.
