Certain Baja's like say an 25 outlaw have what I consider a deep V of a 24 degree deadrise.

I think some others like maybe the 22ft and smaller had 22 and even 20 degree deadrises. (I may not be dead on but as an example those numbers can work)

24 degree deadrise will offer a deaper V and also cut through the water better because of the sharper V it creates.

22 or 20 or less deadrise will ride noticeably harder in rouch water and will "pound"

other factors will come into play as well when considering the ride of a boat, lifting strakes (how many, how big, how long, etc), Weight, Pad (no pad, wide pad, small pad, full length pad, etc).

I'm going to guess your not in the 24 degree range with a run of the mill 22 cuddy. very few boats run deadrise that steep in that size. even my Pachanga only runs a 22 degree deadrise and that's fairly steep for that size. as far as microboats go I think I might be considred a deep V for my class :D
