Yes, we mentioned that but no boat manufacturers uses that method, it is complicated. A vertical tube will be a siphon, instead we need a scoop that pushes the air in. It is much easier to have those cuts in the sides.
Now, to stay with the style of the boat, I would leave it as is as make the cuts very discreet.

plans say
The bottom should be finished with at least 3 coats of special hard racing bottom finish

can that be graphite?

If it'll stand up to rocks and oyster shell, why not?

Yes I know it's an abrasion resistor, but on the west website it also says it's a low friction coating that's why I was wondering if the graphite could be an alternate for the special hard racing bottom finish

one option for bottom paint
I really doubt it will do much for you more than smooth sanded graphite would - looks like it is for boats that will spend time in water

I don't think that's a paint, also US$469,- for a coating life of 1-3 mo 8O I don't have Trump money to spent :help:

That superglide stuff is $469 for 2500 ft2 I imagine that stuff plus neverwet would make for some interesting hydrodynamics.

Found some pics of her, beautiful boat imo, when you look in the engine compartment it looks like the side panels does have a camber or is that an optical illusion? Also looks like a V8 is possible :lol:
