|Lines plan of the modified hull - can you spot the difference?|
The only difference is that I have moved the lowest point in the sheer aft by 370mm (about 14-1/2") and lowered it by 42mm (1-5/8"), but the boat has changed from being an ugly duckling to a beautiful swan in my (biased) eyes.

But the most important thing it proves to me is the astonishing effect that tiny variations in shape and proportion can have on a three-dimensional object.
