Very nice. What kind of speeds can you see with a setup like that?

87-88 depending on options. One of the non-liner 37s has done 90 w/ 525EFIs; light on fuel and friends.

Excerpt from another thread in the OSO forum:

The way the dual-hull (DDC) rides is just indescribable. The step comes to a very sharp point at the very center of the keel; the line that is followed from the nose. From the step back to the transom is a somewhat flat pad, that has strakes built into it for accurate tracking. This basically allows the sharp point of the step to land first, and split the water in two, and then the pad carries the boat straight and level with no chine-walk/teeder. With such a dramatic single step, the boat ALWAYS, ALWAYS turns on this one step, at 30, 50, 70, 90 mph. Boats with multiple steps get into a disagreement with the driver on which step to pivot on, at any given situation, and this is how multiple step boats get out of shape in turns. I'll leave it at that. The AT is a single 4" step. Some of the other manufacturers are using 2-2" steps for the same level of efficiency, and angle of attack. Its a pretty well known fact that Cigarette and Fountain did NOT get their single step hulls right. Its a shame that too many folks think a single step does not work, just because they did not get it right. Again, all you need is a ride some snot to understand:

The 33, 37, and 43 use the same design bottom. The 33 is literally a 9/10s scale version of the 37; not a blocked off mold. The 43 is also designed and tooled from scratch.
Here is some information on the architect of the DDC hull:

Brian,
I guess I am thickheaded, but I don't understand the liner delete? How is that possible? How do you make the boat as strong. How is the cabin built with and w/o? Why would want or not want a liner.
Looking for detailed explaination. . . . . . .
