    Doesn't matter what series or hull shape you have. The key is making sure you have a high length-displacement ratio...i.e. anything above 6.0 is fine. You can use lower, just means you'll need a more powerful engine.

    You're over thinking this.
    Just produce some lines, a shape that "looks" ok and the hydrostatics satisfy your intent of displacement, LCB, VCB, LCF etc. All you need to do is make sure the lines aft are gradual for water flow into a jet duct, not a sharp change of shape, that is all.
