    Lymans are definitely great boats (right behind CC), but all those bumps and lumps on its hull (I think they made up the word “Lapstrake” so they didn’t have to get the planks flush). I’m just thinking how much sanding it would take to fair those sides. They also knock down the spray so much you end up staying dry. What’s with that?

    While you are writing about books, Paul Pletcher has two new ones just out on Chris Craft Commanders. One about history the other about upkeep and maintenance including the XKs and Corsairs.
