Re: Modern Hull forms and Motion Comfort
I think you are painting with a very broad brush.
I am trying to, there are so many variables involved: hull design, construction, application, use, personal preferences, etc.....you have to paint with a wide brush otherwise you fall into a very narrow groove that only applies to a few. I was being specific enough to say a modern racing hull design is designed for a specific application that does not result in a hull motion comfort. The hulls designed for boats that do have a comfortable motion are not that different from older designs.
In a thread "mdern hull design and comfort" are you comparing different modern designs or you comparing the motion comfort of modern designs to older designs (people who like the latest greatest put all older designs in the same catagory as being poor performers)
