With Shona and Jane both speaking highly of their new boats perhaps they should be renamed "Everywoman"

Had another great day out on the water in our everyman 635 not many fish but the boat goes so well it didn't matter.  Perfect for divers wide sides great for dropping of so easy to drive and goes like a rocket the 150 four stroke yamaha we got on the back so quiet we sometimes forget it's going when it is in neutral.  This boat gets the thumbs up from me and a triple A!!!!!!! rating recommendTongue

Don't think the Everyman is a Scott Robson design, is it?

If they are not a Scott Robson then they must be by Kevin hall? Kevin is the only other designer that comes close to Scott Robson

Regardless of who designed the Everyman boat (check the tradeaboat site for details) I agree with you reelimin that they have relatively flat bottoms. I think that with a stiff plate hull and a reasonably pointy nose they will be OK in a moderate chop, but, there is no magic formula, a 15 degree deadrise will not make for a softriding hull.

I have had a look at the tradeaboat articles also the one paper magazine test and none of them mention who the designer is. So I can only presume it is Kevin Hall. He is a wierd ******* to deal with and keeps a low profile behind the scenes. Yes you are correct there seems to be no majic formula for deep vee against stability at rest.

Always difficult to get a handle on 'what's a good boat?' As we have seen above, anyone who has just shelled out huge dosh is likely to be biased, the magazine articles are next to useless and are effectively PR releases from the boatmakers, I mean, how often have you read the lines: "it was a beautiful day on the Waitamata with flat seas... etc etc,  whats the point? When i questioned Propeller magazine when they described the Stabi 589 as a 'soft rider' I was told that you can't campare a boat like this with a deep v glass boat!!! well hello, what were they comparing it with? a barn door? In fact i'd bet if you stuck a few rod holders and a motor on a bathtub (and spent enough money on advertising) they'd take it out on a flat day and call it a 'soft riding hull' - and yes, people would buy them and say they are great. It would even win innovation awards at the boatshow "it's great, the bung is on the inside",
