what was this thread about anyway????
Well, not to hijack the thread but, rocker is like a banana-shape. The hull bottom is not totally straight, it rises slightly as it transitions to the transom. A hook is usually at the aft-most portion of the bottom and "hooks" downward. The downward hook acts like tabs in, forcing the bow down. Rocker in a hull lets the bow rise.

Now, back to the regularly scheduled program.

Keep checking back to see if Moeron will chime in to give us his side.

His silence does not speak well for him...

311's with out a doubt have rocker built into them. That is why they work so well with the Kamma drives.

Nort your a dead man.... DEAD I TELL YA!!!!!

Yup. They also have rocker built into them. I hope that they run well with Konrads as well!!! Of course by the time that I get my boat in the water, maybe Konrad will be gone as well.
