I think if you looked at our ribs, which you have not obviously, you would find it on both sides. as it was designed and built to be like it.

What has a Stepped hull design got to do with a 'non stepped' Phantom 18 running surface?

ST/BD side looks pretty straight to me.

Could you just run the theory of this design past me again, i'm a little slow at learning.

any chance you can pull that blue hull out in the light for a better look at the top chine,

such a shape could help plaining and or low, low speed plaining
could be a good thing with a 4 stroke outboard set up.

the person with the pics is not the owner of the rib.

the shape was devoleped by lots of sea trials. it gets planning with ease and with little horse power. the ribs run a lot better with it than without it...

True enough, but I have seen the boat in the "flesh" so to speak and one side appears to be "banana shaped" and the other straight (ish). I will ask the owner if we can take more photo's if you wish.. perhaps with the help of a straight edge to remove the subjectivity

I thought you said that you had cut'n shut two hardboats to achieve the shape.
