If it ain't got a beak, it's just another plain jane.

Since we're on the mold topic....Is RF starting from scratch or is he using some of his exsiting molds?

This thread is hilarious. You have to admit from a marketing perspective the beak is brilliant. Maybe it provides lift (performance) maybe it doesn't. It certainly stands out in a crowd and adds size. For whatever reason I'm drawing a correlation to breast implants.

The beak helps direct the boat to the ocean floor when you land a little nose down!!

They have a similar drop nose design on the Force boats here in OZ. Downright scary in big seas cause it constantly feels like your about to get swamped. They definatley are a quicker design in calm waters though as the drop nose does create lift.
Check them out:

The beak makes it easier to identify while sinking
