Kurt is right. I did build the boat believing it should have no rocker. After kurt pointed it out I measured the plans (not built from a kit) and found the 1.5 - 2 rocker. Sure looked straight to me until I actually used a straightedge. My MC13 ended up with some rocker but no more than an inch at each end. The boat handles fine and turns as expected for a 13' long and fairly wide boat. Wife and daughter love it and report on handling with smiles! More rocker would be fine.
