    What is the best way to figure out where to place a center console on a hull rebuild?
    I could either launch the boat and move weights around or try and calculate it.
    Boat is 23 feet long with quite a shallow V. It spends much of its life at 7-8 kts and then some at planning speed.

    I know there is a trade off with planning hulls isn’t there when it comes to best weight distribution at displacement and planning speeds?

    It depends on a few things, but for comfort's sake, perhaps a little further back than amidships.
