(Assuming flat calm water)
1) Would a deep vee boat be slower than a shallow vee boat with same weight and engine? (prop can be changed to allow engine to rev out).
I would say YES because of more wetted area but have been told the opposite by boat salesmen.
2) Is a heavier boat slower because it has to be prop'd down or also because its weight pushes it into the water more?
3) Are Deep vee boats 'faster' simply because you don't have to back off in the rough stuff?
Stupid questions probably but I'm trying to understand the differences between the Phantom/Ring/Marshan style boats & the Fletcher/Picton/Shakespeare style ones.
in anticipation of some possible answers.
