    I aquired a copy of Lord's "Naval Architecture of Planing Hulls" 1954 edition. I've read it a time or two but now I am bearing down and studying it hard. I understand some of his thinking has been superceded. I would appreciate any input regarding what to take as gospel and what to take with a grain of salt.
