Most options that can be selected on boats have both good features as well as drawbacks. The deep vee will give a smoother ride in choppy seas allowing the boat to ride at a reasonable cruising speed without too many dental fillings dropping out. The drawback to this feature is stability when the boat is stopped and its time to fish. The deep vee is less stable than the modified vee at rest. You will have to decide which is more important to you. Fly fisher folk spend a lot of time on the casting platform and stability at rest is important to them. They do pay the price when running in choppy seas.

Good luck with whatever option you decide.
