    I have a question regarding a fast planing boat 40Knots(54'x10'beam).The designer has added 3 strakes a side and the highest one runs into the chine. The chine is 3". All strakes running parrallel with the keel. (The only purpose for this was to add strength to the hull because of only two long. girders inside.)
    Can anyone tell me the factors involved with this strake running into the chine.
