Just put a tape measure on it and see where it is in relation to where you think it is. I swore my bottom was straight, put a six foot level on both strakes was perfect. put it on the keel center line in front of the pump, I had a 1/4 inch of hook. Move more forward on one of the strakes, hook again. Real noticable when it's flipped over, Ive seen photo of several others, with the same issue.
rocker = convex / hook = concave no confusion here
But whats important here is the placement of both and WHY they were put there in the first place.

That shit don't matter, it's out of the water anyways. Well it is on mine anyways.......
Oh, and that boat is a turd with a no2 ferd.
I recomend speaking with Tom over at JBP. I would not do the intake set myself. The picture above is my brother doing his own bottom and resetting his intake. The following year the boat was sent to Tom Papp Racing to have a botom put on it and the intake set correctly. There are people who have been doing this a lot longer than us and know how these are supposed to be. Money well spent having someone in the know do the bottom work and intake set.
You may be able to get some more lift out of the rear of the boat by using a loader with 9 or so inches of blocker. I would like to see some more pix of the boat. I do love my black swtd.

What does that have to do with what I was saying! I'm not selling contact lenses. Both a hook and rocker are a convex confiuration in ralation to the bottom of a boat. I was talking about where they are located on the bottom of a boat. M
