    I’m not in the field, I played a bit with Leo Lazauskas toys, thanks him, but I forgot to ask this.
    Understand Michelet is a for displacement hulls, is there and what is the extent of the interest in using Michelet to study a 4 m long sail catamaran ? I mean, in such a case what is the interest of the displacement performance of the hull versus the planing one ?
    Thanks for reading this.
