Re: Modern Hull forms and Motion Comfort

Different hull designs have different applications example: the "entry angle of a racing boat is for one purpose and one purpose only, speed (with no concern for comfort or ease of handling)...while the bow of a cruising boat designed handle comfortably in nasty weather at sea is a totally different thing...for a good reason. So why do you find racing hull designs on cruising boat. The marketing industry does this for two reasons, [1] "if my boat has some of the features of a racing boat it will go faster. [2} People are led to believe that anything of old design is bad and anything new must work better.
