  The Hogged Back Saint
  Posted by: dougd on Feb-28-13 5:14 PM (EST)

Would fit every term put up so far with the exception of flexing, too damn wide to flex! It is a Disco 158 for the record and famous for oil canning or hog backing. I have major dents from bouncing off canyon walls, rocks, logs and a few unexpected drops, oil canning enough so if you stomp hard enough you can launch a beverage into your hand. I consider oil canning and hogged the same. There are enough waves in the bottom of this boat to almost get seasick looking at! Brian has the definitions hitting the hammer on the head IMO.

Nothing wrong with a boat with those characteristics, mine has a lot of miles on her hull. Love it for poling and sailing but hate it for portaging.
