Wow. what you and LB have posted is really helpful. If I get a fish I'm definitely going to suggest that he use his template for them with some East Coast modifications. Probably going to go with a 5'7 or 5'8 cuz the extra length always helps, about 21" 1/2 or 21 3/4" width for a little more bite, 2 1/2 thickness. I really don't want too much rocker on it because i want the speed there so what would be a good dimension for that?

I like 4"N and 1 5/8"-2"T (depending on bottom contours) on about a 6'0. If you get the right plug, you can add a bit of flip in the nose over the last 4-5 inches for better performance. So that 4"N includes that flip.
I like a combination of subtle concaves and vee in the bottom... light vee in the entry, to light single, to double concave out the back. If you do that, you can nudge the fins slightly forward and/or in from the rail, and go with less tail rocker. If you go simple flat to vee bottom (more traditional) you can go with a bit more tail rocker, but not kicked... really natural over the back third, keep the fins back, and let the vee add some rail rocker through the tail.
My 2 cents...
