Re: Modern Hull forms and Motion Comfort
Paulo, those videos of the Pogo 12,5 are really impressive. She looks quite comfortable in those mild sea conditions. I'd like to see how that hull configuration does when the sea kicks up into 6' square-faced waves and also how she handles in a big following sea. I can't help but think the bow might tend to be underwater a lot (to the point of pitchpoling) and make control a bit difficult. It looks like a wet ride but going that fast, it's understandable.
