My first thought when I read this thread:
How is a 13 year going to get a 4.5 m mast to the shore ?
Would it be possible to have a design...
waterbiking in Europe
good articles in the design section; great examples
I understand the reduction of sections and waterlines.
I also understand the concept of metacentric height....
It turns out that the Godzilla run with 33 stations produces a better result for the power requirements at 5 m/s:
Yes, this is the input file only.
I use Godzilla this way: I run a specific 'in' file, then look at the output/results.
Can you improve this basic design
within my given parameters D, L, B = 0.28 this is my best design with 4.01 at 5 m/s.
Can this be...

Two important points:
You have to prepare the surface appropriately.
Everything has to be structurally sound before you...
I agree that it should work without a spray gun.
I used to do it that way, letting gravity do the job of filling pores.
If it comes to speed I would consider a foil under the outrigger.
I have built a variety of foils - attached to the rear iaku, about 1...
I was out in the open ocean today in about 4 - 6 ft swell; while paddling I thought of boat design ...
There is no way to fully...
Use West systems epoxy.
To fill, use microballoons and silica/carbo; I actually use 80 %/20 %. In case you are looking for more...
Rick, I am currently trying to find sufficient information reagrding open ocean behavior of possible hulls. It is quite...
Yes I have been on your website before, I had not seen the V 6.
You may be interested/have read this thread; some of the desired...
This bow behavior is exactly what I imagine for my OC 1.
The important part would be that this bow could display this...
you are right on the performance of the chined hull, the speed drops form 4.7 to 4.0 knots at 20 N.
I will look at your V 7,...
We have roughly three types of waves:
- The smaller chop that your V11 does so well in.
- The confused chop that hits the boat mostly...
I understand 'rocker' strictly in terms of pressure relationships: if the flow accelerates over the longer surface than the lower pressure...
This hull has numbers very close to a Godzilla hull at 6.75 m, 0.27, 0.11, displacement 0.107.
Godzilla narrows the beam slightly and...

The outrigger will likely be built first.
I am intrigued by its shape. I just have to find a good way to connect it to my existing...
