Can you help?  I am a first time boatbuilder trying to put together a design
prototype for a small unsinkable boat.  I need information/assistance to know
the cheapest, fastest and easiest way to construct (and market) a full size
prototype boat like the pros. do. I'm seeking detailed information on prototype
construction methods, materials, molds and marketing.  I'd be greatful for any
construction tips and resource information in order to help me make my dream a
reality....
Thanks, best wishes. David Miller

Can anybody help me?
I saw in BBC waterworld a powerboat with revolutionary
shape of foreship and the whole hull.
This shape should enable to break the waves . the foreship
is vertical line.
I cant remember the name of the manufacturer-Paragon?
Thanks for the help.

The company is Paragon Mann Ltd at http://www.vsvboats.com/
The (pain in the ass to navigate) site has pretty good videos of the
boats running at high speed in a significant seaway.  The long video is
under "Development---MKIII50m", just click on the thin yellow bar.  The
short video is under "Concept---Wave Piercing".

I originally thought that this was a wave piercing design but they call
it a Very Slender Vessel (VSV).  The term VSV also shows up under
various navy sites.  It appears to be a wave piercing bow coupled with a
deep V hull.  Kinda looks like the anti-dive elliptical bow of a fast
sailing cat/tri grafted onto a cigarette/donzi hull.  Very interesting.

I'm very curious about the pros/cons of this hull and am interested in
everyone's opinions.
