The Fast Skiff 12 has a program similar to our FL12 with a major difference: she is designed as a planing hull, without rocker and a moderate vee.
She is designed for a first time builder and is an excellent introduction to the material and the building method we use for our large power boats: true composite hull, simple set up on a jig made of a pair of 2 by 4's.
The FL12 is a displacement hull. That means that she will move easily through the water at displacement speeds, with oars or a small outboard. The FL12 will not plane even with a large outboard because of the rocker in the hull. The transom of the FL12 is above the waterline at normal trim and she can be lighter than a planing boat.
The FS12 is a planing hull without rocker. A planing boat must withstand heavier bottom loads and the transom must be able to transmit the thrust of the engine to the hull. For those reasons, the planing boat hull must be stronger and heavier. With her immersed transom, the FS12 will not row as well as the FL12.
