changes to wooden boat plan?

by Richard Weisbeck


I have started to modify slightly, wooden boat plan from Classic Boats, - the "Deep V 16".

It's powered by a Mercruiser stern drive.

I plan to make some subtle changes, but will not interfere with the hull design.

I would like to know if adding some height to the top side would have an appreciable effect on the performance. (perhaps more mass above the C of G?)

The boat in my opinion is a little shallow, so I am hoping to add 2 -4 in.

Your opinion would be appreciated.
