Mahogany Runabout Hull Shapes

Post by Nick_NZ »

Hi,

Im doing some research into what runabout to build, ~20ft

I want the Barel Back look but iv noticed that most of these have very flat aft sections to the hull.
Living in Auckland the Vast majority of our time spent in the boat will be in the Harbour and Hauraki Gulf where it can sometimes get a bit choppy so Im looking for a hull that has a bit more V along the full length. Iv noticed the Monaco retains a bit more of the V all the way to the transom so thats what im looking at. will do the Utility version.

To you guys with the more flat hulls, how does it ride in the chop?

Cheers, Nick

The Monte Carlo has more of a v shaped bottom and it has the barrel back.

Nick - both the Monaco and Riviera are similar with only a 7 degree angle from the keel outward near the stern. Thus, they do not have much of a 'V' bottom near the stern. I've ridden in the Monaco and building the Riviera myself. The time I did ride the lake was rather choppy due to wind and the ride was just fine. :)

Few things in the world measure up to the thrill and satisfaction of boating in a boat that you built.
