Not too sure about shallow hull, believe mine has a 24degree dead rise, but other than that i agree with you, less HP needed for fun.

Both brands are well priced alternatives if being on a tight budget. Won't be dissapointed with any of them.

Well trimed, even sitting way back transom, driving like a upgraded gondolier, the rib planes near instant due to their light overall weight and excellent hull shape design.

Happy Boating
The reason fopr the good ride is they have quite a deep v for a small hull . Highfield actually quote the deadrise at 24 degrees on the larger models . Its much deeper and wider than my old glass hulled rib made by Lodestar
