About the author:Jim Russell is a professional engineer with a mechanical and aeronautics background. Currently living in Canada, he has done extensive aerodynamic research at University of Michigan, OH and University of Toronto, Canada and marine research at the NRC water channel laboratory in Ottawa, Canada. His published papers are highly acclaimed, and are specifically related to the aerodynamics and hydrodynamics of high performance catamarans and tunnel boats. Russell has designed and built many tunnel boats. As a long-time professional race driver, he piloted tunnel boats to Canadian and North American championships. He has written power boating articles for many worldwide performance magazines and has covered UIM and APBA powerboat races. Russell is the author of the "Secrets of Tunnel Boat Design" book, "History of Tunnel Boat Design" book, and the "History and Design of Propellers." His company has designed and published the well-known powerboat design software, "Tunnel Boat Design Program© ", specifically for the design and performance analysis of tunnel boats and powered catamarans.
