Man, it looks like every one of these have a different bottom design, I like the angled chines and flatter bottom under Larry’s boat but the curved chines under Dan’s are interesting, and the lift strake at the edge is really interesting, you guys need to get these boats on the water under power so we can see how they do!

i have the full width front bench too,must have started in 59
i do not have the trim tabs present on your hull
i first though the high transom was added by someone over the years as it does look pretty hokey
someone added a grab rail ,enclosed the side of the motor well /inner fins and added aluminum checker plate to the front of the splash well to make it much higher and i plan on leaving that as you will really need to take a high wave astern to swamp you
the aluminum material used to enclose the fins has the same textured pattern the deck has so i am wondering if it was factory or dealer add on
