Excuse me for I know I am sinning.
When I see photos of SF Pelicans under way, the bow is just plowing up water, the stern is creating so much turblance & suction it looks like the boat could not possabily move forward.
Now belive me, I want to build a Pelican, I have the plans in hand.
But I read the notes etc. and they talk about shifting forward or aft. My mind says No, Abort! Abort!
Has anyone ever extended the bow and stern rocker 12"ea. to reduce the drag. So she slipps cleanly through the water.
Sitting at rest, empty the hull looks fine, bow and stern are out of the water a bit. Looks good. Looks right.
