Anyone take the hook out of their 13 footer?

there is alot of hook in my hull and I have to use alot of trim-out to compensate....
Anyone do it?
I realize it might porpoise alot at lower speeds....

Bein' as we is not playin' golf, here, define "hook" as used in your previous post, if you please. That term's too much for me.

be as this is a boating forum, not a golfing forum,
hook can be defined as a concave depression at the back near the transon on the botton part of the hull.

it purpose is generally to as a trim tab and hellp the vessel achieve hydroplane kicker and also in some instances, levels the vessel that list to port under power.

some hulls only have this feature on one side, some on both

Mebbe somebody's playin' jokes, here. For one, they's not a 13' hull ever been manufactured by Boston Whaler that sported a concave depression as described by aquanut, at least that Ah've ever seen or heard of, so how does one remove a so-described hook that ain't there? And what the hell is a "transon" or a "hydroplane kicker"? Is that last combination a position on a water polo team? It's still all just too much for me. Ah know, mebbe you guys are from Czechoslovakia, and they talk this way over there. Is that it?:-!

The "hook" as decribed by Aquanut is not readily visibe to the eye but is definately there (checked with a straight edge) on every Whaler I've checked.
A "rocker" would be the opposite......
Not Czech just boat hull lingo....
