First, for some reason everyone seems to have the wrong conception about Arnesons and Surface Drives. This is in fact the answer to your question as look no farther than how people are giving you the idea and feedback about how a rudder boat is and how they believe a rudder boat is going to react with one engine.. This does not apply to the topic, rather that applies to how a race boat setup reacts and it is the same way for a Merc drive with a rudder.
You don't need a rudder in order to have an Arneson. In fact far from it.
There is no specific boat that is specifically designed for a "Surface Drive".. Unless you consider, Skater, Cigarette, MTI, Spectre, Eliminator, Donzi, Fountain, Magnum, Hustler, Nortec, etc, etc... specifically designed for a surface drive. They are the same boat you see in the same bottom configuration as they always were.
