Same color as my Barker 26. Love how it changes color in different lights. Will be watching this thread that's for sure!

Close enough. I'm not far from them. Do they have any finished pics of this model ?

Edit: Saw a couple on google. Badass boat. What's the beam?

They only have the skifs on their site.

good question for the lamination engineer that designed the layup. No idea.

beam is 9'10" at the widest point. There is another thread on here with the entire design process in it.

The strakes are usually filled with putty(heavy) or foam(light). Don't have to worry about the fabric not laying in the strakes during glassing or something like that.
