This is what makes our boats different.
There are two different types of aluminum boat floor construction - Cross Ribs (competition) and Longitudinal Rib (Excel)
Inside the Excel floor we stitch weld longitudinal ribs. These 2" X 4" ribs are the toughest in the industry.
Check out these boat bottom illustrations.
With the Excel longitudinal ribs - the boat bottom resists waving. This produces better performance.
Cross ribbing will eventually allow the bottom to wave. This distortion leads to reduced performance.
Square chine and our triple taper chine.
This illustration shows our triple taper chine with flat bottom (green arrow) and how other boats are built with a square chine (red arrow). Our triple taper design allows the water to roll off the side differently to make a drier ride. Our triple taper round chine also allows the boat to roll into a turn and turn on a dime.
The square chine boat illustrated with the red arrows causes water to rise up along the side of the boat for a wetter ride. The square chine causes the boat to slide in turns.
The Triple Taper chine on our boats provides superior lift, a drier ride and allows the boat to roll into turns for top notch performance.
