Big D,
Thanks for the input. Supposedly it's based on the old guide boats form Rangeley Lake (which I think is Maine).
They originally had a lapstrake hull which are the ridges along this boat's hull. I read somewhere they also keep the hull more rigid. Not much info on the net about it yet. BTW, for folks like you and me who like big square backs there's an Alaskan canoe forum with lots of good info. I'd give a link but I'm not sure if it's allowed on this board.
