But I've always dreamed of my Skater Ride lol...
No problem.

Gus said yes at Desert Storm. I will see you there with Blume and Gus for sure.

The website states with pod or without pod. But my question is about deadrise. I am plenty familiar with V's, but lack experience with cats.

The DCB website states 14.5 degrees at the transom, while all the other long established cat builders are 17-18 degrees for the ocean going cats.

Is the DCB a variable deadrise, perhaps with a higher number of degree forward and fewer degrees at the transom to perform a bit like a pad, like used on some hulls (usually lake boat) , but yet slice the water a bit better upfront with a higher degree.

With everyone else using 17-18 degrees for the ocean going cats. Will the DCB still be a lake boat even without the pad. How harsh a ride will the DCB be with only 14.5 degrees, will it pound the hell out of ya in 2'-4' seas.

As of today, its not even close to being done. DS is certainly out, sometime this summer is more likely. I think the goal is LOTO, in August.
