If the "industry" were to go to carbon and composites as a whole the price would greatly come down.Originally Posted by Dock Holiday
Radical hull designs are cheap in terms of $$/mph but costly in terms of sacrificing that Old School "look and feel" and then the edge you loose in turns.
You have to concede when you buy a stepped hull boat you have a straight-line boat. Some companies's design are more radical than others.
I hope the industry puts more efforts into lighter hulls and ditches steps..a pad maybe...but New Old School for me
