What I take from Jim's mention of classic lines makes me think of Novi style as opposed to displacement with lots of vee and deadrise - a Finest Kind, Eastern, Stagepoint, et al, has lots of room for people to move around, fish from, and yet it's slung low enough to be beached. I have to be honest - after I first thought about it, I also wanted to add the Whaler to the list. I'm not much on vee hulls with a ton of deadrise for getting close to the rocks to cast to foam and wash.
