My 16 foot Lund has what I would call a "rowboat" style Vhull. Its a V-hull but the V slowly dissappears to Flat at the transom like most aluminum row boats do where as most 16'+ concole steer boats are V'd all the way back. With the 90hp V4 on the back now it jumps on plain dang quick but I need to maintain about 18-20mph to stay on plain where as I only needed 15-16mph when I had my 55hp on the back (130# difference in wieght on the transom). When the waves get choppy I like to stay on top as slow as I can to keep from getting wet and smooth the ride a bit and also when towing "newbies" on the tube I like to keep the speed down a bit. The boat handles great and holds WOT turns without ever side slipping (I can trim the engine all the way in at 40mph and crank the wheel to bring it around with out ever pulling back on the throttle)
Basically I'm looking for slower plaining and maybe not having to trim in all the way on HARD turns to keep the prop from blowing out.
