While we have the experts talking, and not to hijack a thread too much:

What's the scoop on the scoop, sugar scoop transom that is?

Good or bad as a speed vs stability issue. Almost all modern catamarans have them and my understanding of the seawind 1100 is it's basically a 1000 with a longer scoop added to increase bouyancy aft and speed potential.

One more question if you feel like answering it - there is a post of a Gunboat 62 passing a RP 80 in the 'where's jody' thread - it's almost flying a hull.
Gemini's - my boat - does heel 7-10 degrees when I'm cooking. Is it beneficial for me to get up on a hull as it reduces drag or is the 'equal' submersion of the other hull canceling that out.
