For those who worry about fuel burn and speed I direct you to the Jan . issue of Wooden boat Magazine and an article about LDL boats. The article Motor Boats Of The Future pg 52 featuring work by Nigel Irons. What you get in an LDL boat is long skinny and low and light with the ability as a SD to go well beyond the old estimate of waterline related hull speed. So with small or modest HP one can get good sea keeping ability with great mileage and speed.
