    Leeroy, i find the easiest way to know the sharps & flats in a key is to remember that there are never the same letter (A-G) twice in a key. meaning all keys have an A B C D E F G. The key of C Major is easy, no sharps or flats. the next key (clockwise in the circle of 5ths) is G Major with one sharp. So start with G and write the letters out, G A B C D E F. Next you have to remember that a Major key has an interval pattern, 2 Whole steps, 1 half step, 3 whole steps, 1 half. or W W H W W W H. So start w G, whole step to A, whole to B, half to C, whole to D, whole to E, whole to (either F# or Gb), half to G (next octave) So since you can't have a G and Gb in the key, (same letter) the proper denotation for writing the key is to use F#. Make sense?

    i'm leaning the other way, the bow should be sharp and deep, like a tri amma. That way the energy of hitting the water at speed is slowly dissipated, instead of a shock load landing..

    is it possible that the design on HB's bow focuses too much on strength and stiffness of longitudinal stringers in lieu of the skin? My thought is that given the shock loads, a more robust hull form and somewhat elastic internal frame system would yield a better all around structure. Carbon is certainly a superior material, but it does have it's shortcomings in being inelastic or brittle with high shock loads. it would be interesting to compare the weight difference in carbon between the skin and stringers in the bow...
