This windscreen that we have on all three models we produce at present, has no significant negative effect. A normal slooping windscreen is creating more downforce which gives a larger wetted surface and a slower boat. Our windscreens might have a lifting effect instead, but with increased air resistance. And air is softer than water after all. With eight lifting strakes on the 26° deep V-hull, this boat is riding high and has very little spray and wake. Here at normal cruising speed just under 40 knots.
