    hi ive got this project where i have a list of

    planning Hulls from 8 metres through to 14

    also displacement hulls and semi displacement hulls 8 metres through to 14 m again

    with HP ratios

    60 hp 3000 rpm
    70 hp 3200 rpm
    90 hp 3200 rpm

    up to

    600 hp 3200 rpm

    with gear box ratios


    also engine drives

    shaft drive
    stern drive
    jet drive
    surface drive
    hydralic drive

    im doing a hell of a lot of research on the individual components but if anyone could give me an explanation of these components interdependencies:)

    we have to match hull length and type with engine mount, Hp and a gear box ratio :), explanations of why and or links is very appreciated :)
