i am curious to find out what the hull speed is for the lo voltage hull as i know the electric power will push it to about 5 miles an hour but i am just wondering what speed the hull will actually do

flyinwall,

The Lo Voltage is a "semi-displacement" hull. A planing hull theoretically has unlimited speed potential, a displacement hull speed is limited by the length. A semi-displacement design will fall somewhere in between. We have an article on this subject here:
