It looks really nice! The combination of the pronounced tumblehome and the relatively deep-V at the keel should make for a gorgeous transom.

Aside: looking at that image made me realize that there may be a secondary use for the curved surface we’ve been talking about — to help define the on-deck line of any railing for a cockpit if it were set away from the sheer (and its surface if it were a solid rail with a aftward slope that matched the transom, a style I seem to remember seeing). That way it would be based on the exact same shape as the transom at the sheer but could vary to match what the deck was doing.
