On-line Boat Data

I'd like to pass on recommendations, partly from the Nov. 21 issue of Practical Sailor and also Paul ("Polarity") in the sailboat forum. For on-line data on existing boats, check out:
Sail: http://www.image-ination.com/sailcalc.html
Power: http://www.boattest.com/main.asp

For the definitions of terms, try http://www.tedbrewer.com/yachtdesign.html (though it says "L" in LCB stands for "Lateral"; I think it stands for "Longitudinal")

For information on multihull resistance, check out:

http://boatdesign.net/forums/showthr...p?threadid=280
and

The state of the art can still be improved!
Stephen
