Deck Boat Bottom Configurations

From the discussions I read in The Forum, seems like the SD models have a different hull design than the Sports. Can't tell from the Hurricane brochures or videos, but looking at hull bottoms on Huricanes for sale on Yachtworld.com, the SD 2200 and SD 2400 seem to have more of a V at the stern, while the Sports tend to be flat. Can anyone tell me what the dead rise is on the SD models, particularly on the 2400?

    Stangely, the SS203 seems to have a different hull configuration than the other SS boats.  Deeper V in the front (also, a shallower total draft).  Maybe Capt. Steve can explain.

    When I was shopping for my boat 3 years ago, the dealer said that Hurricane had only 2 basic hull designs: 
    1.  The more traditional "deck boat" design which was flatter and more stable, but also a rougher ride in choppy water.  This is the design found on the majority of Hurricane boats.  This is what I have on my boat and is found on most of the FD, and SD Sport models and most of the SD models like the 217, 237, 188, etc.).  These boats have a dead rise of around 12.5 degrees.
    2.  A deeper "V" type hull for a better rough water ride found on models like the SD 2000, 2200, 2400, 2600, and the SD Sport 220.  This design is on a limited number of Hurricane models. This design also tends to have more freeboard.  These models have a dead rise of around 16 degrees.

    I had the chance to ride both models before I bought, and there is a very significant difference in the way they ride, amount of bow rise, etc..

    Thanks Ernest T. The SS 203 OB is a new model for this year. The dealer that I spoke with mentioned that it has a new hull design not found on any of their other boats and that Hurricane would be adopting that hull on some of their other boats. Hopefully Capt. Steve can tell us more.

    It would be interesting if Capt'n Steve would list the hull dead rise of all Hurricane Sun and Sport models and comment on the reasons for the different configurations.

    Hey guys... I've asked Jeremy to weigh in on this from an engineering perspective. Stay tuned....

    Here's a list of the deadrise measurements for the different Hurricane models. It all comes down to finding that "sweet spot" of quick-to-plane, low bowrise, rough water handling, speed turns, etc. Jeremy has promised to give us more detail on the reasons for each designs today or tomorrow.

    Capt'n Steve, thanks for the input. I assume those models with more dead rise are slower to plane, but handle choppy water better and more inclined to stay on track at idle speeds. Look forward to what Jeremy has to say.

    @delhaven ... that has been my experience. Also curious as to what Jeremy comes back with.

    Any more info on the subject?  Just bought a ss203 and want to take it to the ICW

    Usually with threads this old (July 2013) it's best to start a new one, but I see that Capt Steve did not get a further response from Jeremy that could be shared with the members.

    Here's a thread that might help answer your question, if you haven't seen it already:


    Your boat weight and length would perform better in choppy water than the SS188 one member talked about in the thread in using his boat on the ICW.

    You may want to start a thread asking what members boat on the ICW and how their boats (model number) handle that waterway.
