Updated drawings

I am working on a 4' model of my next boat using the calculated dimensions. In the mean time, I've used the frame patterns to create some approximate scale drawings of the full size boat. With a station spacing of 14", the bow half angle is 23.2 degrees. Bow height is 44". The deadrise at the stern is 6.2 degrees. Design draft is 8.4". The side view shows an enclosed bow from station 0 to 4, a small cabin from stations 4 to 7, an open cockpit with small coaming from station 7 to 14, and a planned stern well from station 14 to 16 for an outboard motor of about 15 hp.
