Noank Pulling Boat Preview Video

A 2 minute preview

I've been putting my new design extensive sea trials as I work on finalizing the builder's instruction manual. I'm really pleased with how the boat is performing, it has very nice glide, decent initial stability and great secondary stability, handles waves gracefully and seems quite fast. I ended up adding a small skeg (as I expected) that allows the boat to track very nicely while maintaining good maneuverability.
