Re: Moment curves

I agree that there is no connection to the buttocks. This is an area distribution thing not a fairness thing. I think it was just another way, an unusual way, to try to get a feel for how the area curve changed as the boat heeled. But for me to really understand it I would have to sit down with the designer and see exactly how he calculated it. I would ask, "What does this tell you that a simple area curve wouldn't tell you at those angles of heel?"
