>>>>all I have to do is shave an inche off each side panel pefore installing shear strip? I realize that I could order the 16lt, but the 16 is longer, so I think I'll end up with what I want. Any suggestions?
The underbody of the Chesapeake 16LT is identical to the standard Chesapeake 16; we literally pull the same bottom panels off the shelf. Same waterline length. The 16LT is an inch lower the entire length of the boat and a total of 1-1/2" lower directly behind the cockpit.
