    I'd like to pass on recommendations, partly from the Nov. 21 issue of Practical Sailor and also Paul ("Polarity") in the sailboat forum. For on-line data on existing boats, check out:
    Sail: http://www.image-ination.com/sailcalc.html
    Power: http://www.boattest.com/main.asp

    For the definitions of terms, try http://www.tedbrewer.com/yachtdesign.html (though it says "L" in LCB stands for "Lateral"; I think it stands for "Longitudinal")

    For information on multihull resistance, check out:

    http://boatdesign.net/forums/showthread.php?threadid=280
    and

    The state of the art can still be improved!
