How would I make a plane with a hollow cylinder and a flat bottom, like a skateboard half pipe?

I am just thinking about making a primitive shape. No details are other than a shape. A side view would be akin to this " --U--" but flush with the top and a bit of flat bottom.

This is my first blender project, so I hope this question is appropriate.
