    OK through this forum and reasearch I now understand that a Deep-V Cigarette type hull would not make a foundation for a economical cruser.

    What about using a offshore racing cat boat? Could this type be lower powered with any efficiency?

    Would you consider a top fuel funny car, repowered with less HP as a good go to work car? Why not?
