    Robert the outer chines look somewhat like this pic. except they actually follow the inner chines. There are many ways and configurations of runners and their installations. I see your talking about 60 to 90 HP, I don't think i would put the on anyway except for parallel with the center-line. . When we made them/ Skiff's, the largest motor made was a Merc. 15 HP. :)

    Hello Old Mud. Would you mind posting the pics again? I'd like the visual aid. Thanks!

    mmm? The Total boat builder put a 40 hp and advocated the vessel could handle a 90 hp. I was leaning towards a 60 hp up to hearing this from you. mmm? I'll hit them up to double check. Really appreciate your input
