I'm contemplating building a composite 20+foot freighter canoe. I've been looking at old hull designs and most are running a shallow V or Y type hull. I'm more interested in a shallow arch type hull with a slight flare and somewhere between slight to moderate rocker.
Is anyone aware of a 20'+ freighter with that type of hull design? Most seem to be more of a lake or open water design.
I'm leaning towards a carbon fiber core, sandwiched between fiberglass and Kevlar, w/ Epoxy infusion for the hull. No wood in the sandwich.
Any help or ideas out there?
