...... one other thing with an arch bottom , I feel they are more stable in rolly , bouncy waters as they don't seem to tilt as much as flat bottoms in such waters (ie. mountain rivers , light plus rapids , quartering and side on waves , etc.) . I'm speaking of side to side rolling/tilting motion .

Flat bottoms tend to tilt as the water tilts (ride more on the surface) , where even a mild arch bottom tends to counter the water surface tilt .

Maybe that could of been said (explained) better but you know what I mean ...
