    I am at National Geographic TV just watch about "Independence of the sea" biggest cruiser.

    He have some aerodynamic boat stabilizers and because that not move left-right on the sea... do anyone know more about that? some links to similar technology?


    Can this be implemented in smaller 30 meters boats maybe?

    GP333,

    they are used in almost all yachts over about 60-70 feet, it is a pretty proven technology and while they add complexity and cost to a vessel can really add a lot of stability while underway. I have included a link below that has a decent article on them, just not it is a few years old and there are more modern systems.
