Post Outboard on a GD hull
Considering putting a 40-50hp outboard on my 18/44 GD hull during the summer. Anyone have input on this?

Take it easy on sharp turns at high speed, otherwise it will work fine.

I've dipped the gunnel and transom before. It can fill up fast depending on how much weight is back there.

I’d be interested to see how it goes if you do it with that boat. Is it a tapered or round chine? My hunting now has little necessity for the gator tail and considering a 90/65 jet to run heavier loads and faster . Slick bottom + jet is what worries me...

To those that build boats....would it be possible to add a single external longitudinal rib with something such as angle aluminum to help in grabbing in a turn?

Are you meaning something similar to what the Phowler extreme hulls have?
