    The NACA 4-digit profile generator will give you an adequate profile see which will come up as NACA0012, just change the last 2 digits to the % thickness you want. It has a lot better lift/drag than a flat board and is not much inferior to the profiles used by serious devotees of performance. For a motorsailer delaying onset of separation is much more important than minimising drag.
