The stepped hull is discussed here.I have never ridden on one of your rigs, but one passed me in east matty and it sounded like a cruize missle. I gave your website on another forum for someone looking for the the ultimate shallow water high performance boat. Does the stepped hull actually make a difference performance wise? I have heard that it does not really add any benefit unless your pushing 100 mph and can adversly effect your handling. Care to comment?
