    I would rather have a very rigid hull than one that flexes a lot.

    Thats the impression I was under. If it has too much flex, it'll crack.

    Rigid = more speed...flexing will cause slower speed, plus flexing hurts cornering performance.

    Contrary to some beliefs, a hull that is too rigid will self destruct. All raceboats are designed with a certain amount of "give" incorporated in their construction. Now, I'm not talking about a hull that flexes as much as a limp noodle, but rather one that can distribute and absorb the shock of high speed pounding without cracking into pieces.

    Same goes for skyscrapers....anyone know how much built in flex and sway is exhibited by the Empire State Building on a windy day ?? !!
