And who did then? From what I have learn the 312 Stinger coming from the 31/32 Excalibur.

But please straight this out :)

Jean Claude Simo designed decks and such,,, ask Charlie McCarthy..he should know firsthand.

couldn't you just add thickness to the front of the boat instead of cutting into the back? If you made the whole front half of the boat say, an inch thicker in some fashion you would have a step without having to cut into or move anything.

It would be a simple step bottom though. Mine looks like a frikkin space ship and this picture doesn't do it justice. From a 3 dimensional sense, it's complicated as hell.

Dave Goodman at Tiger Fiberglass and Marine I believe did the bottom. You will be money ahead if you just buy a stepped boat.

As I remember ,It came from the 29 Cary originally built by the Old master Schoel,which had the aft chine flared (horribly) somewhere down the line,there was a raceboat Speedy Doris, The 32 Jaguar open fisherman and the Cobra 32 came from it.

much newer. If it so the boat change could cost more than 20000$.
I have done many glasfibre jobs.. so no way i can save money with changing the boat.

It would be nice to know how many mph can reach more with steps compare without steps in same boat+same engine/drives.

That doesn't take resell into account. If you modify it you'll have to give it away. Newer boat will hold its value better.

Yeah - but wouldn't that add a TON of weight to the front of the boat and totally F-up the weight distribution?
