This may sound like a stupid question to some, but, if the transom is still uncut, and the stringers have not yet been driled, how is it setup for ASD's vs 6's? Ive seen 6 drive boats w/ the tunnel extension also.

Most likely the shape of the bottom. ie: more or less rocker built into the bottom etc.

The bottom does not need anymore rocker in it for the Arneson than it does for the Speedmasters.

There is DEFINATELY something different between this boats hull and the hull Skater builds for SSM 6's. I am not an expert but my sources are...

I called Skater direct and the conversation quickly began explaining my SSM 6's would not be a good combination for this boat since they (Skater) set it up for Arneson drives.

The hull notch is very different. You CAN NOT run sixes without hull modification. It has a rocker in the hull. I spoke to Skater about this hull. It is a an expensive conversion. This thread and the boat are a waste of time. The Bank is nuts.
