Re: Full or fin keel?

Keforion- thank you for the suggestion. Looked at that book a while back and tasked my poor grey cells. Big difference is I think at present even many monohulls are functioning in semidisplacement or even planing a significant amount of the time. Requirements to maintain attached laminair flow in these settings is somewhat different from my limited understanding of the fluid dynamics. But as you say there is nothing new in the world. One issue to do this with a light dinghy another to a blue water vessel wth significant infill saling in unprotected waters. great suggestion thank you.
