Lance, i found the reverse chine on our design to be a PITA! it added multiple steps in the build and alot of extra fairing, for me it did anyway.

Marcs idea is the way to go.

Wish I were building 22 ENVI Offshore Center Console "Ultimate"

Im all for having the chine built into the boat. I know Caroliners have protruding chines and spray rails..... but 6 inches? On top of possibly giving the boat some weird handling characteristics, wouldnt they be fairly prone to damage.... from warfs and docks to fishing tackle?

I am not sure how I missed this... Sorry.

I am just afraid that it would spoil some of that "classic Carolina" look about her.

I think the way I would do that would be to build in some chine flats into the boat and then add "normal" chine rails to achieve the same affect.

Thoughts?

Hopefully this is the right place to ask this question


How about increasing the size of the aft chines? Maybe tapered to protrude as much as 6" or more at the transom?

I am thinking of Fred Hudson and the Chris Craft Commander. A heavy pronounced triangular reverse chine.

I would think this could help on a pilot house version where you are jigging all day long.
