I'll try to be marginally helpful to the actual intent of the thread. I've seen a few really nice west coast boats (that big Nordic, LaveyCraft, Larry Smith) but all in all, most west coast boats are flat water boats. And even the big ones are flat water boats!
I saw a photo in Hot Boat recently and it looked like the stringers on one of the west coast boats were just plywood that was screwed or glued to the bilge floor!
And for the record, the last lake I boated on was named Ontario.
