    Sometime ago I came across a website explaining the various ratios such as Sa/Displ, LWL/Displ etc and the range of results per type of boat, which I cann't find now. Can anyone help?

    What formula & units are used for these ratios?

    I like this one, even if he doesn't use the metric system :)
