The flair is added on to the bottom panel in the CX-25 and does not change the wet surface or the useful volume in the hull. I don't see that it would be different in a smaller version. Here is what it would look like on an 18' hull. I don't think it would look good on a FS17. http://paysbs.com/cpg1...

For some reason I keep coming back to look at these pics, I've never been on a "carolina style" boat but the lines are scrumptous. The narrow entry should make running in a chop a breeze, the pronounced flair at the bow would direct spray away and the open aft deck should be easy to fish on. There ...

His father owns a custom yacht building company and I have been teaching him drafting using Rhino and AutoCad. My education is engine...
