    Nope, not a Trident. Doesn't have the swoop at the front of the sponson....

    What is the "Swoop", is that the platform that looks like it folds back onto the boat?

    No, look at the outside of the sponson as the hull comes back from the point...see how the Trident's bottom lines are shown where the other boat is slabsided.

    Hmm, now you have me confused, what does slabsided mean?
    OH! you mean the lifting strakes?....how far back to they go underneath the sponsons?
    Nice boat BTW, how do you like it in the typical Havasu type of water?

    I think what he is talking about is the angular tooling.

    Many toolers use plywood as a substrate for the shapes on a boat. When you have big, flat sides and surfaces the term for it is "slab-sided". Curved surfaces are both stronger and more visually appealing, though far, FAR harder to tool properly initially.

    That boat has an gaunt, angular look to it, and the outside of the front sponson is a dead giveaway that it doesn't bear much resemblance to the Trident.

    From a nautical terminology standpoint, what Keith is actually describing is the "Shear" line, where it leaves the parting line and goes under the boat on the outer edge of the sponson. You can see that this boat is hard edged, terminating a large flat area into a hard chine, where the bottom forward running surface meets it. If you compare the picture with the Trident, you can see that the bottom surface radiuses into the front with a curve.

    Plus, as has been mentioned the "hog-shear" line from the parting line up is far taller on this boat than the Trident. It is common for decks to have this look in front, and one of the reasons we fought so hard to get the shear line higher and reduce the hog-shear dimension. By doing it the way we do, you keep the seating area in the front, without getting the "deckboat dustbuster" look.

    But, you run the risk of looking like an overgrown Sea-Doo...

    Here is a shot of it on the trailer so you can see the difference.



    What you don't see in that picture is the big radius shape that the sides make all the way to the parting line. The whole side is curved outwards for strength and looks.
