amateurboatbuilding.com and bateau2.com do not work for me right now.

8O won't that effect the way the boat sits in the water compared to the standard 18 or 19 gal tank under the forward casting deck?

So even if the waterline is on the plans, don't have mine with me, that waterline may not be valid for what you propose.

What would you consider, displacement or semi-displacement?

And with this general length, what would those speeds equate too?
