I bet Vee bottom is important to a flying boat. On landing wetted surface increases slowly so it doesn't slow too fast and trip. Probably makes a difference on take-off too, a flat bottom may take a lot longer to build enough speed to rotate. Just a guess from staring at planes like an eight year old for the last 40 years...
