Roy all the different type and length hulls tend to get a custom spec as stringers vary as does a customers desire for configuration.

It may prove beneficial to look a few boats over and determine what type rigging and features you would like. Take some pics and ask if you could get measurements. If you could find a sister hull with the same power this would really be the easiest way to be sure of what your building as some boats like hull jacks etc.
