Re: Moment curves

Jeff's guestimate, above, comports with my original thought as to the 1st moment of the water plane (the immersed area) about the longitudinal axis of the yacht (see page 1).

As to Bob's spline weights, I am pleased to note that, as always, he neatly has his ducks in a row--or two.
