Jet ski hull modelling

Hi all,

I am working on the design of a hull for a jet ski which will be made of carbon fiber. I have the shape of the hull but now I need to add the strakes on the bottom (like in the picture). I made one using extrude plus fillet/chamfer, but it doesn't look smooth. I tried to use the freeform and deform but couldn't make it.

Does anybody have some hints about which tools and method I can design it?

Thanks a lot.

Personally I would be using surfacing tools to create complex shapes like that and later knitting them into a solid, if a solid is required.
