I'm looking for pictures and the different types of hull bottoms (flat bottom,ect). I'm new to this and want to understand what the differences are and be able to understand when I read about them. I'll take anything. Websites, pictures or just explanations. Thanks any help is appreciated.

I think they just want to follow your thread so if they write something they will get a notification when others reply, that's all........ I'm assuming

This is how 99.9% of v bottom jets are.


A gullwing/TX-19 will look similar at the back (transom), but the front is a bit different. It's almost kind of a mix between a V and tunnel. Fast, good riding hulls.  :thumbup:

Tunnel hulls have 2 "tunnels" that pack air under the hull as it planes. This is a Stealth, similar to an Eliminator Daytona. . 

Southwind (SWTD), Crusader, Ultra, and some other companies made tunnels as well, but have 1 pointed bow instead of 2.


V-drive flatbottoms and hydros are just that, flat. V-drive cruisers have a V shape but are flat without the lifting strakes.

Hope this helps a bit. Keep asking questions. And welcome to SCJB.
