Re: Full or fin keel?
She wasn't surfing so it would have to apply. Length is the easiest way to increase speed. Large ships today travel way under hull speed economically. Hull speed of a Panamax ship surpasses 40 knots.
That is not different with us. If the hull speed is 8k the economic engine speed would be about 4.5, 5K.
