Re: Modern Hull forms and Motion Comfort

John:
Doug was truly in love with the project and Doug is a very optimistic kind of guy. Cecil is a bit of a bully. Cecil made several unfortunate changes to NR as I designed it. Two of them caused structural problems. One change was done on the QT to save Cecil money. This came out later. The other major change Cecil sold to Doug with the idea that it would save Doug money. Doug will tell you this. The thing that saved the NR project was that most of the work was done by Cecil's son Bob and he is a very good builder.
