Kittens better on the theory than me, but this is all about keeping the steps vented, with shallow steps it is easy for the steps to get closed off when the boat heels over, the steps then suck water and hold the boat over on one side until it releases, then rolls onto the other side and repeats the process. With larger steps this is prevented.

Once the steps are properly vented the hull will ride on two or three points instead of the whole back of the boat reducing drag - it doesn't have an "air skin" under the hull.

Do all the rails line up, just from the photos it looks as though where you have a step the next rail is inbetween the previous two? Is it just how the photo has been taken? If not why don't you have them running in line?

All of the spray rails are removable although we think it's just about right (Obviously!)

No they don't line up!

Do you mean recovery? Have you taken into account the progresive spillage from the angled rails and the waisting of the fwd hull?

Yeh, ok you could call it recovery given that mostly the forward hull will be cutting the water but that bow will be riding the bigger waves. Not worth discussing tho cos I can only see the build pics... I'm sure you'll remember I said it and put me right after running it for a while... or not.

Just jokin.

It's a lot of work tho guys and I hope it's a big success for you..

I was just interested that was all, you've obviously made the rails like that for a reason?
