Default Good Question- some aluminums have high deadrise...


....like the Starcrafts running 17 and 19 degree deadrises in their 17 ft and up sizes. The only thing I can think of is that the brands you mention don't want to have the additional roll you get while trolling or casting with the higher deadrise in a relatively light aluminum boat. As for me, I'll take the smoother, drier ride from the higher deadrise anyday.

I agree with staylor. A smooth ride in rough waves is very important.
The deeper V of the starcraft, 17-19 degrees will burn more gas, and you will need a higher speed to stay on plane. But I feel that these sacrifices are worth it for a smoother riding boat. You and your passengers will have less fatigue when you get back from a trip.

I believe my 1850 SF Crestliner has a 17 deg dead rise.

I owned a boat with a 19* deadrise. The ride was great but in our windy country, the side-roll when drifting was extreme. You had a hard time sitting in the bow seat (which was mounted higher) when it got rough and you were drifting. Glass boats can have a steeper entry and round off the deadrise near the transom because they can shape the hull any way they want. that isn't possible with the traditional aluminum boat that has to carry the deadrise angle throughout the legnth of the hull.
