    Hi,
    Although, I got B.Sc. degree in Naval Architecture 1988 and been involved in designing some "Pleasure Yacht & Boats", I find myself rather inclined to go deeply in the secrets :confused: of designing "Speed Power Boats". So that, I am searching for Distance learning "Speed Boat Design" course ...... Please, let me know.

    If you really have so much experience in designing "Pleasure Yacht & Boats", I do not think you need from any distance course for designing high-speed boats. Maybe read some scholarly articles, many of which you can find in this forum. Otherwise a speedboat (I'm not talking about a vessel run by the HS Code), is designed like any other, taking into account the stresses its velocity imposes to its structure.
    If you want to be innovative, yes you should study some aerodynamics / hydrodynamics.

    Talk to Dave Gerr dgerr@westlawn.edu at Westlawn, http://www.westlawn.edu/ They have a course called Elements of Technical Boat Design, “Elements” – Introduction to Boat Design. It's designed for folks like you that already have a lot of technical knowledge.
