    Hello all,
    I just got the VPP plots using the PCSAIL, excel program from Michigan. the ship i have designed is 2.13 m long. so i want to compare my prediction with performance curves of similar hulls in water. I have fractional sloop design and hull is close to U shape. Displacement is 99 lbs. It has long fin-keel with a bulb. I am trying to fit a 10 kg ballast in the bulb. I have been looking to validate my VPP by comparing with the existing hulls in market. Looked up online a lot, but no help.

    I would love to have your feedback.

    Thanks

    Don't have any real feedback, but I'm curious. What is this hull for? It's too big for any model racing class, and too small to take any human.
