Design and Construction
As you can see, the pretty lines of this boat with its proud bow really set it apart. The North Rip's designer, Daryl A. Wilbur, performed extensive research prior to drawing the lines in order to carefully adjust the center of gravity and center of buoyancy. Consequently, this is an exceptionally well-balanced boat. As you might imagine, the hull incorporates lots of complex geometry with many curves, unusual radiuses and angles throughout, all created via an amazing seven-axis robotic router. Add to that the imprimatur of legendary Rhode Island boatbuilder Everett Pearson, and you simply can't doubt that this boat will be as solid as a rock.
