Nice!

Your hull has a pretty serious "hump" at the keel to bow transition. It's going to want to really ride bow up on you once you're planing. That's a good thing in rough water but annoying when it's calm and you want more speed or to run sitting down.

Don't know if you had tabs in your plan, but looking at the bottom of your hull, I think you're going to want them.

You could keep more weight forward to counteract, but if you try and fish with an angler on the bow in the skinny stuff you're going to be bumping bottom with the bow.

I love bow high boats for some reason.

Well, don't keep us in suspense. What's your renovation plans with the panga. Interior layout? Power? Other goodies?

25hp 2stroke tiller. Grab bar with cooler seat. open layout with small front deck. lots of open space to fish. possible rear bench seat. All composite rebuild due to obtaining really cheap materials otherwise i could never do without wood.
