    Professional BoatBuilder magazine Number 199 October/November 2022 has an informative article by John Kecsmar about considering local conditions in the design of wind-farm crew transfer vessels (CTV). John compares the sea conditions of the North Sea and the US east coast, and the differences in the response of a typical North Sea catamaran CTV to those different conditions. John states "In my experience, seat conditions in an CTV's intended service area should have the greatest influence on its design and operation."

    It seems to me that any boat design type should be given careful consideration for the expected sea states in which it is to be operated. Horses for courses.
