Re: Moment curves

Those are very interesting curves but they don't tell me anything. I just need a more simple explanation other than the Wiki one. I would think a more useful set of curves would be immersed volumes at various heel angles. For my simple approach to design that would be a more tangeable way to look at immersed heeled volumes. I've been around the world of yacht design professionaly now for 45 years and I have never seen them before. Maybe Jeff can explain them. Now I really want to know.
