Absolutely not!

George engineered and drafted it..... and the concept was formed over a coffee table after I vetoed a 28 foot Shadow vee bottom George had designed.

As a matter of fact I don't think either of us had ever met Simon at that time.

Amen to that.

T2X,
The bottom of that hull looks a lot like my 30 Cobra Terminator hull, Is there any relation?

Hey George
Tried to call a couple of times,I know you are probably busy.Just want to know if I can benefit from some setback and if I can should I just get some brackets or some jackplates.I think I need to get the lowers in some cleaner water to solve my water pressure and temp problem.
