Title: boat shapes
Post by: duncan on February 25, 2010, 10:46:22 AM
I currently have a D8, can anyone give me an indication how similar ( or not ! ) the plan layout is to a pipedream.  Looking at widths in particular with respect to covers.   I know a cover for another model will fit, but how well ?  Many thanks  Duncan

Think you will find that the Design 8 is much wider at the beam and the transom. Methinks a Pipedream cover will need some tailoring!!
