    Many experts have their own views on the values surrounding these 3 different types of hulls, but what is the largely accepted range for the Prismatic Coefficient, Speed : Length ratio & Froude No. for each of the 3 different hulls?

    Also, can someone provide a table of corresponding Prismatic Coefficient values for each speed : length ratio up to >1.4?

    Thanks in advance!
