    Hello everybody,

    I am currently building a hydrofoil boat model for my final year project. Hull design has been completed. Now i am trying to approach one optimum design for foil system. I am lifting my hydrofoil with surface-piercing type, V-shaped, constant chord foil arrangement. But I am having problems with designing the foil-submergence and foil dihedral angle to obtain an optimum righting moment. I want to know the calculations and theories to get the position of metacentric height in foil-borne mode as well as the nature of GZ.
    If any of you could help me by explaining or directing me to some books or some websites or by any means, please drop me a few lines. Warmly and urgently welcome!

    Thank you
