    Don't worry, Bill, I'm not after great detail, so I won't be
    disappointed.

    What I really like about FAST proceedings, and what I hope to get out
    of FAST 2015, are some rough dimensions of very recent existing ships.
    For the Wind Farm SES (e.g. Umoe Mandal's recent offering) all I want
    is the approx. displacement, maximum cushion support (e.g. 80%) and
    the overall length, and beam. I can set up a crude approximation that
    users can then add detail to themselves.

    Between what is already public domain on the UM Wavecraft, and what will be presented, you'll be good to go.;)

    It's enough for preliminary estimates of wave patterns, sea-bed pressures etc.

    I'm not sure if Lawry Doctors et al will be presenting something at FAST 2015,
    but I'd like to see a bit more on their seal drag experiments before I release
    Flotilla. One of the "team" expressed some disappointment with the last round.

    Leo, Lawry is presenting a paper on Dynaplanes, but there is also a paper on seal hydroelastic responses.

    Thanks, Chris.
    I look forward to seeing the conference proceedings on his work and any other
    work (Bill McFann's?) on SES and ACV.

    I unfortunately, at the last minute I won't be able to make FAST this time, though I was hoping to. It is looking like a great conference.

    Thanks to Chris McK, Paul Roden, all the SNAME people at the local section and HQ for getting this together.

    Have a great time.

    We will miss you Chris, but I applaud your reason for missing. Take good care.

    Hope you all have fun and learn (or teach) something interesting!
    (I'll be happy to hear of any ideas on predicting the drag of SES rear seals!)

    We had a good time, Leo. Lawry and I exchanged some ideas on how to drag you out of your cocoon to attend some of these conferences. ;)

    Simple. Just hold the conference across the road from my place, next to the tobacconist.

    The most practical compromise is for engineers, naval architects and
    experimentalists to present their latest ideas and findings at
    international conferences, and for me to try to incorporate them into
    free computer programs written from the comfort of my lounge room
    during the dead of night.

    Does anyone know when the proceedings be available?
