Re: Modern Hull forms and Motion Comfort

Good to know...I sometimes get caught up just trying to understand the physics arguments sides of things I sometimes miss where the post or threads going as a whole..but
it's been a good thread...If I were a young yacht designer wanna-be..I'd be reading threads like this every spare minute....and trying to understand my customer's true needs vs. his/her likes..and nostalgia for what they grew up sailing on...vs again what they really want designed/built for them...the young sailboat buyer today is more informed I would guess than a couple decades ago...probably alot in part due to websites such as this...and older buyers already often know what they want whether it's on the cover of Sail Magazine or "Good Ol' Boat"... I'd venture to say.....
