Re: Bob Perry's take on Wolfenzee's dream boat

So the change to a bulb was simply Jeff's q&d change to lower the VCG while not adding draft. Given the options for a longer and deeper or thicker foil though, was this done with specific calculations to lower VCG? Or is this just a guestimate that it would be the way to go?

And of course once the underbody starts changing shape, do these lines reflect similar changes to keep the balance and performance of the boat? Or does that get refined later in the process?

Bob, just how big a lottery ticket are we talking about here? Powerball? Or lotto?
