On the M-11 Vid look at the beginning and watch it travel through the pack of M Boats.Watch the first 50 seconds for the cheetahcat then the pads and deadrise will be better explained.

Drat they disabled my Chili Peppers Aeroplane
makes sense to me. I always thought using a delta pad can give you some speed but at the cost of a harsher ride. Buy coupling it with a steeper deadrise you can restore some of that, so theres is a balance between the two. This was something you found in the math beforehand? So through design you dont necessarily need a heavy boat to tame rough water.


Damn youtube police

Exactly and that engineered ride will not ever beat you ,The fishing boats also were very well mannered all the way from idle through "Boat" mode and into warp speed very predictable. LMAO it was a cool bit of background music.

From a Technical standpoint, I honestly do not understand some of the key terms & phrases being used in this thread, but beyond those points, I've learned more from reading the past 10 pages, than I have read anywhere else online.

The knowledge & experiences that Steve has been sharing, is amazing.
