The Sincerest Form of Flattery

When I first looked at the profile model I thought "wow, he should send a commission to Graham", but the closer I looked the more differences I could see.  Of course that doesn't discount the obvious bracket theft.

The Carolina Bow is a pretty common feature on this type of boat, so not any real theft, as it's been well done, if not overly so over the years. The broken sheer is also a fairly common feature and also not a surprise. The bracket has a number of logical reasons behind it's shape and a designer of Dudley 's skill wouldn't need to copy anything.

Agreed.  The styling cues are common...and just like the lines of a Carolina hull, there's only so many ways to integrate a bracket.
