    Jim Kuklish back in the late 70's ran this type of hull and had good suscess with the stock bottom. How much power do you plan to run? I think I would concentrate on the pump and set up and leave the bottom alone at this time. Jim was able to run speeds over 100 mph with a 480 cubic inch modified engine so I'm sure the boat will run just fine with the right set up.
