    Vignesh, unless you are just preforming a classroom exercise, in regard to this vessel, then you simply aren't remotely qualified to consider self designing, a craft of this size or configuration.

    Well,i make the aim of the project clear-:

    small cruise of 50 meter lbp.250-300 pass capacity.for brahmaputra river.

    twin screw propulsion.

    stern wedge concept ,here not for trim optimisation ,the idea is to use the increase in pressure created by the water flow in that region to assist the ships motion,there by reducing my thrust deduction.[doubt wether it will work in a river].

    ps-:this is not a commercial product.not a school assignment.

    its just my personal project as i have no data about designing the above type vessel ,i came here for a guidance.
