If the convex v hull theory was true, you wouldnt be able to skip a stone on the lake...it would sink on the first bounce. fluid dynamics applies in water just as it does in air, so the initial thought would be that a convex create a low pressure zone below the hull forcing it down, similar to how the shape of a wing creates a low pressure zone above.
that is all fine and dandy until you start mixing mediums. the density of the water relative to the density of the air above it is ALWAYS going to force the hull to the path of least resistance, which is up and out of the water. additionally, the angle of the prop and propshaft on all wakeboats forces the boat out of the water...they push up, not parallel.
furthermore, every wakeboat has a convex at its entry point along the keel. when at rest, that entry point is in the water. if the convex v theory worked, as soon as you started applying forward momentum, the bow would suck down due to the "low pressure zone" created by its convex.
hijack over. lets talk about the star.....
