The flexing you see in the deck is not a strength issue as the knits and cores support the area. We simply chose not to utilize a bulkhead to support the deck at the v-berth. This allows easier access to the v-berth as well as a more 'open' feeling in our cabins.

If fiberglass doesn't flex it breaks. You just need to make sure your lamination schedule meets the demand.
Good explanation on the deck.....it was unnerving to me. Wish I had known that when I was in it. That is a beautiful cabin in the picture that you posted. My 37 weighs quiet a bit more that 10K and the 38 is just about 11K. The AT is a fast hull no doubt. Have you done a full stagger #6 boat? Following a 37AT down the road from behind just looks crazy to me. It looks like something is missing. I am not taking stabs at your boat. My hat is off to you for doing something different with your bottom than everyone else has done. I thought that the AT would not ride good in rough water as flat as the bottom is in the back....but I was totally surprised at how well it did ride in rough water. Not at all what I was expecting from where I formed an opinion from looking at it on the trailer.

Isn't putting 'best bang for the buck' when talking about an OL kind of like asking about the gas milage of a ferrari??

Its not the pen, its the penmanship.
PERFECT !!!

I believe the customers boat for the article was around 101.7 but don't quote me.. The Yanmar boat was around 80-82... that i know for a fact. Jeff

The last one I saw advertised was an 03..dont know of any being built in 04.. it was out west somewhere.. Ol was developing their 39' models.. I prefer the 37 all the way around vs OL 39..and the epoxy boats you can have them..
