Design story - 30.09.2007 by Sebastien Schmidt
"John B. once again" is based upon SUI-169 "Chlika-Chlika" designed in 1989 together with Philippe Meier.
The forward half of the hull shape has been completely re-designed for a better lake-like choppy waves (Chlika was designed for the long swell of Australia and Bahamas), that is concretely narrower and deeper entry lines.
