Re: Moment curves
That's the way it struck me - a bizarre mathematical construct to serve a somewhat similar purpose to the buttock lines on a hull drawing
If that's indeed what it is - how do you get that from the lines drawing? That's what I'd like to know...
I was hoping it might tell me something about stability, AVS, that sort of thing.. but maybe that comes from some other part of the design??
