In another thread there was a lively debate about hull bottom defects even though there was no mention in the OP of that thread that such a defect even existed.
Nevertheless, I am interested in words and the proper use of them. Therefore, as advice, suggestions and general help for future hull defect discussions, will you all please clarify the differential meanings of the following words as they apply to the bottom of canoe and kayak hulls:
- "negatively rockered"
URCHIN Portable Anchor

- "dented" -- A localized indentation caused by an impact
Is this a test?|

Would fit every term put up so far with the exception of flexing, too damn wide to flex! It is a Disco 158 for the record and famous for oil canning or hog backing. I have major dents from bouncing off canyon walls, rocks, logs and a few unexpected drops, oil canning enough so if you stomp hard enough you can launch a beverage into your hand. I consider oil canning and hogged the same. There are enough waves in the bottom of this boat to almost get seasick looking at! Brian has the definitions hitting the hammer on the head IMO.

The mental image of you poling The Saint and stomping the floor to kick a beer up into your waiting hand is priceless!

The thing with bulged sheet metal...|

... in that static-wave example is that it will invariably "pop" when pushed in a direction that reverses the bend. I really don't envision warped plastic or Royalex behaving in that way, though I suppose if everything were exactly right, it could. Normally, it just bends with fairly uniform resistance per amount of displacement when a force is applied, but doesn't "snap past center" with a pop.
"Pan wave deformation"|

Forgive me for I have sinned: I omitted this term from my OP. I don't have any idea at all what this one means, except I will assume Doug's boat has it.
Us hogs are rooting for you, Glenn. |
