    I'll defer to Graham, et al, but the edges of the bottom paint line and boot stripe lines all need to be parallel to the WL. The bottom paint line and boot top lines are *not* a constant thickness throughout. The boot stripe will likely be wider at bow and stern than in the middle of the boat.

    Wow! That's stunning. Did I understand correctly that you used foam instead of plywood?

    I should pipe up. I won't make it this year. I *really* enjoyed it last year, but it is a heck of a long drive from Wisconsin, unfortunately. I'll be looking for pictures of all the fun you're having.

    Hooray! Looks great. Many hours of fun and relaxation ahead, I'd say.

    Seattle CS17 Mk3 Launch

    Oops, I should clarify. I was thinking mph, even though Amos said knots, since Great Lakes folks usually use mph for some reason and that's how I have my GPS set up. So, where I said 7 and 9 (mph), that would be 6.1 and 7.8 knots, or approximately what Randy sets out above. Except he does it more accurately. You can still feel for that "overdrive" oomph.

    What a great day. I love those smiles.

    Seattle CS17 Mk3 Launch

    I don't think 7 is planing, just real fast. When you plane, it should be obvious; you're up on the bow wave and really tracking, feels like a motorboat, little hull resistance. You're going 7 and then all of a sudden you kick into overdrive and you're going 9 (on a standard CS 17, anyway). Usually planing happens on a broad reach, or at least that's the easiest direction to get up on a plane. I say all this not quite sure how a MkIII handles a plane given the water ballast feature.
