What is the Deadrise Sessa Dorado 28 ft (the angle

Customer Question

what is the Deadrise for 1990 Sessa Dorado 28 ft (the angle of the V in the hull)?

Expert:  Ted G. replied 6 months ago.
The transom deadrise on that boat is a relatively shallow 16 degrees. It is not a true deep V and is called a modified V hull.

GOOD DAY MR TED
IT TOOK WAY TO LONG TIME. I HAVE CONTACTED SESSA-MANUFACTURER IN ITALY AND THEY HAVE ADVISED ME (I HAVE THAT E MAIL) THAT D-R ANGLE IS 15 DEG AND NOT 16 AS YOU STATED. DO YOU HAVE ANY DOCUMENTATION THAT WOULD SUPPORT YOUR CLAIM?
Expert:  Ted G. replied 6 months ago.
Well, to be honest with you, I couldn't find any technical specs on the boat so I used some photos and measured it, looks like I was off by a degree!

MR TED
SORRY BUT CLOSE ENOUGH IS NOT GOOD ENOUGH. DR FOR ANGLES BTW 12-15 USE ONE TYPE OF TRANSDUCER AND DR WITH ANGLE FM 16-24 USE DIFFERENT TYPE.
SO IF I WOULD HAVE TAKEN YR ANSWER I WOULD END UP BUYING WRONG PART. THIS INFOS MUST ALWAYS BE 100% CORRECT .
