hull extension with step

i have an old 7m hull. not in use .
iam thinking to extent it to 8.5 metters with the 1.5 extra meter to be litle higher so it will form a step.
then i copy (dont knot the riight english word to use in this case) this and built a new boat...

what are the chances for the new boat to be good handling in water?
thanks in advance

This is what Scorpion have done with their new model, and it's something I've seen before on RIBs in Greece. Might be worth a try if you have time to spare!

Similar effect to fitting a gill bracket.
