Or low speed planing hulls...

Thats more a reference to form than the act of planing... as in what its designed to do best. That does not preclude the vessel from planing if the right conditions...

Its only a Seawind 24'



Thats a fuzzy definition! So what is it when you are going faster than displacement hull speed but not mostly out of the water?

Smile Yeah but....

Mine does... :D
