Are there drawings? I went through the other post and couldn't decide what this was. If I understand, it's an extension of some design. Which one?

It's pretty much a Laker except that is asymmetrical (from a top view: the max beam is shifted aft a little for a "Swede Form" hull) and Ron is doing his own deck design.

The Bow and stern heights were also lowered per Ron's request. It's a pure flat water racer that should turn out to be pretty dang fast.

Do you have any ideal where the seat should be mounted. I noticed in the other boats that are asymmetrical it takes a farther back seating position.

You'll want your hips about 19" forward of #4 station. Hope that makes sense.
