    Hi there,
    I will do some towing tank tests with a model of a Sailingboat . (L=16 m)
    I want to compare three keel configurations. A "racing-keel" 3.5m deap, a cruising keel with 2.25m and a centerboard inside wich can be moved out to 3.5m. And at least a tandem keel, 2.25m.
    My question is, has anyone experiance with the tandem keel configuration,knows some publications or did towing tests with it ?
    I would be very pleased if you could help.

    Ciao Max

    PS.: I posted some pictures about my first model to give a better idea what I mean in the boat design forum.
