I was hacking shapes at the proposed minimum beam & max length that look like IC's. Low SLR regimes fascinate me, if the shapes also work at planing speeds. And! You can get a very sharp bow at lower prismatics. Does anyone have any idea if the higher SA/WS ratio would have much of an advantage in l...

Actually the 5.5 prismatic hull comes in at 23.5, which gives 4.5.

OK- crunched some round hulls. If you go prismatic 4.79 with V/Circular/V cross sections, I got the wetted surface down around 23 sq feet, which gives a Wetted Surface/SA of 4.6. Really round sections all over gets you 23 sq feet @ prismatic 5.5, which gives a WS/SA of about the same- 4.6. The cool ...

Steve- Enjoyed the numbers- but for light wind and downwind, how about sail area/wetted surface? What I'm seeing in my own efforts hover around 3.3-3.9, given about 27 - 33 square feet wetted surface if you want an easily planing hull (I think). (The Nethercutt hull, by my guestimate is around the h...

As long as you're tossing length around, I'd like to toss in the idea of an outer dimension box rule-something impressively wide, but still aesthetic, no moth style wings, no traps, with no inner box. I was messing around w/ design the other day, and using a light A cat hull, you could use a KEEL to...

Steve-

Are you talking about Causey's longliner(s)?? Very Cool. Do you know if the bigger jib actually made up for the bigger hull? I've been trying to fold up a canoe for years at the scale model size. Maybe the new rules will make it work....at full size even.
