    Hull sections L/B ratio and wetted surface

    Inspired by this thread I did a comparison of the hull section of my new boat with sections having lower wetted surface and better L/B ratio. The forum frowns on "cross posting" so I'm posting a link here because the info is relevant to both threads. Take a look- it is a bit enlightening:

    Doug,

    I don't frown on cross posting because you never know where you will find something useful.

    ====================
    Jeff does so I try to avoid it. That doesn't stop anybody else from copying and pasting any relevant material in their own thread.....
    You had asked a question earlier about main hull L/B and wetted surface that is answered by that info-I think.

    The 32SR a nice looking boat that's for sure.

    You don't have to be on large tri to fly the main hull, all it takes is good volume in the float. To go 'wild' (to fly the main hull under gennaker) a curved foil helps a lot and a flat gennaker so you can get high enough initially. And why would you want to do it? Because it's the most fun you can have on a trimaran!!!! Trust me!
