Looks good. The bump on the ww side is a great idea, makes it a lot
more roomy and keeps the water off the cabin. The early prototypes
had this (not quite as elegant looking), took it off for the first pro
built one (serving double duty as a sail boat and a ferry boat in
Maine) and never put it back. Suspect it will reappear in a few
designs from now on.

Knocking 5'/1.5m off the length will reduce speed and seakindliness a
little, but better to have a slightly slower boat that fits in the
marina than no boat at all. As long as the weight is kept down, it
should still perform pretty well, wil be interesting to compare it to
the Visionarry's.
