The Grey Ghost is quickly distinguished from other deep vees with its forward-swept stern, a feature apparent on a few full scale offshore racers built in the mid to late sixties. The shape of the running surface is fairly typical of conventional model deep vees, although there are a few differences. First of all, the keel and chines are parallel for less than 20% of their length. but under normal conditions this is the wetted surface for running. The idea behind this was to get the forward part of the hull far enough out of the water so that small waves wouldn't greatly alter the percentage of wetted surface while still retaining sufficient hull length and weight to cut through a heavy chop. Secondly, we all agree on the importance of spray rails and strakes to keep the bow from dipping in turns and for generating life, especially when running surfacing props. However, the problem is whether to use one, two or three strakes per side. I used a single strake with the chine also parallel to the water, forming a spray rail. The result is that the boat rides a little deeper in the water and has less tendency to rock from side to side. Dumas achieved a similar effect in their two strake competition glass boats by stopping the inner spray rail a few inches in front of the stern.

Thank you for looking
