You can run up to 150 on these hulls although i feel they are a bit overpowered, 135 is a pretty good balance but don't go below 90.
Here's a few photo's.
These are all tapered tube models, i do have some pic's of the full diameter tubes that we've done somewhere, i'll see if i can find them.

Do I even see a decent job of the flow coat inside the hull in the area just below the tubes? So many manufacturers do a rubbish job in that particular area.

Thanks for noticing that, we try to ensure that the flocoat is as thorough and consistant as possible.





Although next season there will be the option of a complete gelled deck liner with moulded anchor locker and lid similar to our current 720

Indeed, probably the tidiest flowcoating i've seen and an effective non-slip surface.
