An unusual "pad" close to transom, never seen anything just alike. Does this hull handle like any other or does it have some specific properties due to this design?

Back to topic, tried ones to turn my SR 5.4 in the garden with a friend, not a chance, 2 was not enough, need bigger guys if only 2.

That's a plaining pad, helps to get the boat up on the plain faster!
My Viper had one and my Ribeye too, not that uncommon!

OK, thanks. Noted planning pads on speedboats but those ones has not nearly as steep angel compared to horizontal plane as this one. But obviously it works if used on other ribs too!
