    No I mean how did you measure so well?

    Chalk line, or laser or measurement technique? You did a great job and it looks super flat

    Oh I gotcha. I actually used fishing line lol. Made a bunch of marks and then drew my line. Started on the stringers and cut the rest of the cross pieces based off that. Had my front and stern measurements from fellow members, with slight adjustments.

    If I was looking for an older hull to rebuild with similar lines, what should I keep my eye out for?

    Have you had any regrets not adding spray rails to your hull? I’m to the point in my build where the decision will need to be made to add them or not.

    I run a similar hull but have a lobster top and spray rails and quarter guards will be done next winter along with some 2 part paint, 85% of the time all is fine but there are the times ( every afternoon around here) when you can be running into a 1/4 sea for a solid 1 - 1.5 hours and even if your inside behind the windshield and not getting wet you feel like you have been water boarded. I have had a couple of center consoles that and even some days in early summer can be down right miserable and even worse when wet. I would not hesitate to do them.

    Wouldn’t say the hull needs spray rails. I would bet it’s one of the dryer ob de hulls with its flare. My brothers 22 novi has no flare and is a much wetter boat. When you get the bow down in a wave, say in a following or passing through a big boat wake the flare really takes care of it.
    I am going to throw some on this winter, really just because I had a set laying around. Going to paint them to match the hulk color. Watching this video below I figured they would help some. And as south shore said there are those days where any bit helps.

    If there was ANY side wind, this water would be on the deck. But man, this hull has the meanest running attitude and even through waves it stays dead level

    If you trim the motor will the bow come up?

    To be honest I haven’t experimented too much with trimming the motor up. Almost every time I throttle up i trim the bow down just slightly. I’m assuming I’m a little trimmed down in the video. Member south shore I think told me he can trim his bow up, by trimming the motor fairly easily.

    Definitely. Was looking forward to testing out trimming the motor up, when coming in through our breachway when needed next season.
