Sorry Bob, couldn't give me that one if I won it in a raffle.

I really dislike boats that join the cap to the hull in that way - ie. at the waterline in the rear!

All the weight (OB & fuel etc) is in the rear - and I don't like "joints" at or below waterline - too easy to spring a leak and sink!

To me thats an example of a really poor design.

Take a look at some of those joints when they build them, often not glassed at all - just silicone glue and a few self tapper screws...and put the rubber coaming around with more silicone glue..

One good bump in the rear and the seams open up - and you don't want that happening anywhere near waterline or worse below it.

A simple re design could make that a much better (safer) boat IMHO
Looks good, I'll give you that!
