It usually makes a boat faster.

If the 'pad' is correctly designed for the weight and speed of the boat, the boat skimms the surface of the water without the VEE part pushing into the water.

So there is usually a Vee which then flatens out to a pad. The design of this is critical to get the correct performance & handling.
