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:
For the definitions of terms, try http://www.tedbrewer.com/yachtdesign.html

For information on multihull resistance, check out: http://boatdesign.net/forums/showthr...p?threadid=298 http://boatdesign.net/forums/showthr...p?threadid=280
The state of the art can still be improved!
