So here's a Chauncey Creek Boat and she sure looks "down easty" to me. But where in the world is Chauncey Creek? Not heard of this one. Nice looking boat. Pete

...also, on a down east boat, the bow shear will rise to a almost an exagerated level.

That's why the cabin has to be so tall, so the captain can see over the bow.

Sorry folks but that one has a round bottom hull like a Boothbay or a Lowell not a V bottom. Beautiful boat though. CMEBoston has a 6' hull that is a ''downeaster''

That's all I was asking, how did the title ''Downeast/sport fish boat'' come about. It is a very nice looking hull and I was not criticizing it or the basic design.

The plug I'm building does not have a round bottom. It is exactly how I described.

One more thing...a classic downeaster will also have a flat bottom from the end of the keel to the transom (Which the plug I'm building does not have) and a lot of flair at the bow topsides. Topsides are the area from the waterline to the toe rail. She will also have tumblehome quarters.
My friend has the section drawings on CAD from the Chauncey Creek boat but getting him to make plans for me is going to take a while otherwise I'd be building that one. It'll happen.

This is the first sanding of the process with a long way to go.

Your hull will make a great sportfisherman and looks as though it will have good penetration and be fairly dry with that flair in the bow.

Thanks Charlie.
Your right, I went deep with the forefoot to get better "knifing" through the seas and of course the flair to throw the seas aside...good eye.
Tomorrow I'll spread a little more filler. Sand and fill, sand and fill sand and fill with some shaping goin' on in there also...you know.

That flair is often called a "Carolina Flair" on the real boats. Fishing boats built in the Carolina's that often are subjected to very rough water use this hull type to keep their crew and owners dry. Look in any major pleasure boating magazine and you'll find some great pics of these boats, as their popularity has grown over the years and spread.
