The extreme warped-plane hull design evolved from years of Carolina boats having to cross the inlet twice a day. The summer fishing season is short, and the number of trips boats can take each year is limited. Their hulls must be designed to get through the inlet in almost any sea condition. Once a Carolina boat goes through the inlet and clears the bar, it must be able to run quickly and economically out to the Gulf Stream. Here it will then slow down and troll or wreck-fish often in a beam sea, which explains the need for a stable fishing platform. In short: a very dynamic hull form that can be trimmed and throttled to handle just about any sea condition comfortably and without taking spray.
