Most of the motion discomfort on these boats has to do with speed. If you go only at 3 times the speed of your boat the comfort would be completely different.

Absolutely not.. hull design has everything to do with rough water capability..

AS a mater of fact, the racing boat is much better off at a higher speed in rough water to take advantage of its hull... Same as a power boat..
