Great looking boat. 8)
Correct if I'm wrong but the rear of the sail looks a bit too slanted compared to some photos of the actual sub :(

I assisted with information of photographs of a Sierra close up in drydock. (Hard to come by).
His model matchs my photographs nicely. However, in surfing the open sources, I saw the sail design you are talking about. There are varients in sail design of the 945 class.
I am glad he based it from the pictures I provided. It looks better than the other varient.
It is good to double check, because I dang sure make mistakes sometimes.
But it is correct.

I have a SWM Blueback and thoroughly enjoy it. I'm looking forward to his Sierra.

Wayne,

What Sierra is it? I, II, or III?
