    Yea, I find gliders very interesting and they have great benefits. I've studied the Slocum and Bluefin Spray in some detail.

    At this moment many different solutions are on the table. Trying to figure out the overall best type of vessel for my project. Could mean any cross section geometry.

    Great forum here, with friendly people, thanks for the responses. Will post pictures once I have something to show!

    Can you describe the goals and requirements of your project?
    I think the various navys around the world have shown what billions of dollars of research has shown to be the best shape.
