those lines do something in the water,,it's a funny thing. Turn the kayak over and look at it. The bow doesn't look like it has much volume, it looks kind of symmetrical fore/aft. But if you took it out in waves with a comparable Chesapeake LT you'll find the bow corking up sooner and the LT spearing into the wave. It's got a balance of flare and rocker that works without leaving a lot of boat in the wind.
