Inspecting Boats for Sale: Know the Deadrise for the Boat you Need
People who are considering looking up various boats for sale in Kansas at their local dealerships will almost certainly come across one term being raised over and over again: deadrise—merely a technical term used to describe boat hulls. Deadrise describes the angle formed between the surface and the boat’s hull at any given point; it is the rise of the boat’s bottom measured from the keel. A typical boat has deadrise along its entire length, which heavily affects how the boat handles while cruising on water. Deadrise angles are commonly used to measure how soft the boat rides, or how fast the boat cruises as the pounding force hits the hull.
