They sure were in fact I remember the Off Shore races in Miami where he made a big name for himself, and there was a talented older man that I got to meet in the late 70's known as, "Model Man Jack" that I believe had his hand in that work. I encourage you guys to go to our site and join Club Enforcer and read up on the story of Richard and the Moppie. Richard told me the story how it all started with the Deep V, and though he was not the designer, he befriended the guy in such away that his name is associated as, the father of the "Vee" bottom boat. It is all there and quite interesting, especially the part where he was an avid sailboat racer in the 60's, and this guy with a power boat blew by him in rough seas with the weirdest looking bottom design he ever saw. He couldn't wait to get finished with his race to go find this guy, and of course he did.
