Launching off the face of rollers, it lands smoothly, thanks to a deep-V that carries aft with 24 degrees of deadrise at the transom and Mercury racing tabs. No thuds. No shudders. Deep Impact hull bottoms are reinforced with resin-infused coring, and the sides are cored with Mantex and Divinycell. The hull also gets several layers of Kevlar. Three-across racing seats at the helm (with the driver in the center) keep crew in place. Tackle storage and rocket-launcher rod holders are integrated into the seat-back pod. Two additional bucket seats are integrated into the forward console door. Inside the console is a marine privy with seven feet of headroom.
