It is a 31 Bertram, mid 60s vintage - notice the flared chine line and the curved glass. The 31 was 24deg at the stern and only a bit more forward (like the 20); thats why they never tripped on the...

Very hard to get to without cutting deck. After I redid mine, I figured out a way to redo using pourable (Seacast) without cutting deck. It would have been much easier but I am not sure of strength...

Apparently nothing other than he can bait people into responding to variations on an incessant and pointless theme. Kinda like "Which is better at xxxx, Ford or Chevy?" :D
