Cool-looking design. Any specs yet in terms of length and width?

To the untrained eye, it looks a bit shorter with more rocker than a Covert 9.3 it could be narrower at the gunnels too

Nothing yet on specs or name - but they are working on it! Just got back from a week long trip in the UK to paddle and test out the prototype. Felt real good! Edgier than a Covert, more volume to blast holes, faster acceleration but lower top end speed. Emphasis on primary stability.

Here's a video that I did of the trip!

So the word "lust" does not apply yet for me. But granted, no actual dimensional/ non-SB team, production model reviews will be in for a while.

Maybe this is being too obvious, but say if it were a bit more boat than the L 'Edge lite and a touch less boat than the Octane 91 (and maybe a bit wider, edgier and longer than the Option)-- Like say what an Octane 88/ 89 might be with slightly more piton-avoldant bow and stern profile than the 85/ 91?

Maybe not for everybody, but could see finding a place for it in the garage, ya know
