Re: Moment curves

For those with a technical bent two additional references that I have found very interesting/informative are Skene's "Eliments of Yacht Design"; and, CA "Tony" Marchaj's "Seaworthyness, the Forgotten Factor". One does need some math background to follow some of the detailed discussions but without one can still learn a good deal absent the details.

"It is not so much for its beauty that the sea makes a claim upon men's hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from the waves, that so wonderfully renews a weary spirit."
