The new John B cuts a nice shape through the water John, they are a nice hull.  I have a twin screw tug built on the smaller size hull which is built as the Sun Suffolk, cracking boat.

The new hull looks to be a beast, the only thing that I would say is that the placement of the wheelhouse on the John B looks every so slightly too far aft when you compare it to a Damen product.  Where you have placed it on the new one whilst in build looks a bit too far aft also..................maybe try it an inch or so further forward to see if it gives a more balanced look?

Not trying to teach a master builder how to 'suck eggs' Sir but just an observation, hope you don't mind. :-)

Cheers.

Hi John,
Have you made the Mast with lights on yet? ( or maybe it does not have one ) It would be nice to see a build Log of how the lights are wired and fitted and operated.
