    Hi everyone,

    I have already posted a note on this matter in the open dicussion field, but i'll try again here in Boat design.

    I am a NA student at the University of New South wales in Sydney, Australia,
    and I am doing my BE thesis on kanting keels and water ballast systems. I find it very hard to find useful information on these topics and I would like to ask, if anyone knows about any technical papers or publications on that matter. Any other good informatin on canting keels or water ballast systems fitted to racing yachts would be very appreciated.

    These guys seem to make the top-of-the-line canting mechanisms:

    Be sure to read the .pdf file available on the Canting Keel page.
