i guess u can think about it either way. it allows the stern of the boat in a sense to sit back, but, at the same, lifts the rest of hull/running surface out. Think about how Hook makes a boat run flatter almost pitching the nose down. A boat w/ rocker will obviously run w/ more bow lift than a boat conventional bottom will = slighty less wetted running surface = more speed = KILO RECORD.

Does anyone have any guesses on who's going to be the fastest? Any estimates on speed?

I always thought that having rocker on a step bottom/speed master boat isn't very good.

I was under the impression that the one that holds the record now is a new hull.?.

I still haven't seen any video of ANY Outerlimits at any speed over 140mph.

Actually, anything over 100mph would be a start.
Not a slam on OL or anything, I just haven't seen it. I am hoping someone will post a video of an OL running FAST. . . . I have seen the Fountain boat running FAST - pretty impressive.

For every step in the bottom creates the effect of a rocker. Last I looked, Fountain doesn't run a conventional straight vee without any steps....
That being said, the rocker is built in... ____-------
