I don't know, but I would have to guess that Tennessee is at LEAST 3/8",
since the Sneakeasy is.
I think the rocker aft for planing should be less than 2 degrees, according
to Dave Gerr. On something as long as the Tennessee, even less might be
But, I get only about 20 mph on 25 hp on the Sneakeasy and thought about
this last weekend. I think it's all skin friction - if you put any weight
at all up forward, it will slow down. I think it drops the bow and puts
more "skin" in the water. The bottom itself is not really very smooth and
slick - I really need to turn it over, and fair and paint with something
hard and slick like epoxy.
Point is, on these boats, I think a good bottom is important.
