Hi Eric in your v1.0 if it is the bottom of the transom of the outer hull that is the problem ? It is because you have two control points sharing the same space, if you select each of the bottom control points in turn and press delete you will find there are still points left and the transom is now square edged.
On your second model there are a lot of control points not connected which is giving you a distortion in the shaded hull, try working with the mesh turned on using a the highest setting and start connecting the unconected control points this way yo can see as you are working how you are rectifiying the model.
I have had a play with the transom and made it into a seperate layer it might be a good idea to split up your hull into several layers so that you can hide individual layers when you are working on hard to see areas of your hull
