    There was a thread somewhere here a while ago about max hull speed and there was a nice explanation of why its a myth based on misinterpretation of some naval architecture relations and I can't find it. Anyone know where it is floating around? pun intended

    Not sure, but hull speed is really a myth. There is an economic hull speed which depends on the design.
