This I got out off the fridge.

It was designed (hull sides & deck) from the original 23 footer the have the same looks.

Customer ran out of money so we never got to the hull design.

I still love it so wanted to share

here is the small one :





The Bottom convergence @ station 4&5 looks abrupt on the 42.

On the Vee bottoms we use a 10 station analysis for discussion and it looks like, that chine is running straight well foreword on the drawing.

Yes he does as Just4Fun said. This is the boat Martin designed the bottom for. To give you an idea how good this hull is, it weighs about the same, has the same power and runs the same speed as a 31' cat I drove some years ago.

"With twin Mercury Racing 700SCi engines under the hatch, a Sunsation 36’ XRT—the latest addition to the Sunsation line and the builder’s first 36-footer with the twin 700-hp engines—ran 114.3 mph according to Wayne Schaldenbrand, the president of the Algonac, Mich., company. The 1,400-hp boat made its debut during the Desert Storm event in late April on Lake Havasu.

The stepped V-bottom, which had significant design input from former offshore racing champion and driving school leader Tres Martin, was built for Jared and Heather Morris of Iowa. Former Powerboat magazine technical editor and lead test driver Bob Teague piloted the boat during its test runs on Lake Havasu. Schaldenbrand was on board as a co-pilot/observer.

“Bob said it was rock-solid,” said Schaldenbrand. “I mean, it’s still a boat running 114 mph so you still have to drive it, but Bob said it felt and handled great.”

The second 36’ Sunsation with twin 700SCi engines, which was ordered with a custom cabin by buyer Al Ober through Doller Offshore Marine in Hollywood, Fla., is currently being painted. Once the boat’s graphic are finished, it will head to rigging.

“It’s about three or four weeks from being complete,” said Schaldenbrand."
