Does Oil Canning Effect Performance?

I have a Jackson super fun and from riding around all summer with it flat on my roof rack the bottom is dented preety bad. I've tried to set it in the sun to see if it would pop back out but it hasn't. I can't really tell a difference... What do ya'll think does it affect performance or not.

btw, I believe your subject should read affect, not effect.

But if you put your hairdryer under the seat, how will you plug it in?

I know this thread is a bit dated, but the question remains unanswered, and it appears several parties are interested in knowing... How does oil canning effect the performance of a boat?

Boats need to be stored on end, not on hull: kinda like you need to store a 2x4 on end, if you lay it down, it will warp.

I second the foam under seat, and I did notice a difference on the water.

I believe that oil canning will reduce your mpg.
