Re: Moment curves

Sometimes I have puzzled over things like these curves and in time come to realize that the guy who drew them up had no clue either. It was just a math construct that had little or nothing to do with boat performance. Can't say I've ever heard of that guy's designs. Maybe that says more than the abstruse curves.

I use moments all the time. I even use "second moments" and "moments of inertia". I actually understand them.
I often have moments to remember.
But I never have these moments.
