      It must be remembered the tunnel hull boats are
      shallow draft boats, so they would have to be compared
      to another equal shallow draft boat.

      By Atkin's calculation a non tunnel hull Seabright
      Skiff like Happy Clam performs better than a tunnel
      hull Seabright Skiff

      But if the traditional boat runs aground then the
      tunnel hull wins.
