    It looks like the 13 different people who emailed me to tell me that you are a serial troll and know nothing - - are right. They all told me to ignore you and you'd eventually go away, but it looks like you won't. Oh well.

    What happened to your promise not to answer Ad Hoc or me ever again? Is "serial troll" a "greenesim"?

    Ray,

    Have you considered towing the hull, loaded, and measuring the drag with a scale in the tow line?

    It would give you an excellent data set at various velocities.
