Tunnel Hulls? Boating Forum - iboats Boating Forums

2011-5-16  Yeah the one im refering to in specific is the G3 mod v tunnel hull boats. Or any type like that. The hull has extended step plates off the back with a cut out in the middle back of the boat. Seems to me like the step extensions would add to plaining but the short tunnel cutout would decrease performance while manuvering.

2017-9-11  F1 style race boats are a true tunnel hull (air entrapment) as well but that design has many drawbacks for pleasure use.
