I guess Nick, John over at CLC and any other designer who has to make a buck take everything in to consideration. I would think that an entry level boat would have wider appeal to the masses. Hence the V8 suggestion. I personally would prefer something along the lines of a V10sport or Fenn XT but then you're getting up around the 6Metre mark with the engine requiring some skill level.

I notice that one of Bjorn's skis has the option to widen the beam. He even mentions the V8 in his blurb.

In my previous post I mentioned rocker. I wouldn't put in the effort to build another ski if it was going to handle like a log like my PAX.
