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.
Of late I have become a recognized expert on "Senior moments".
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
