Re: Moment curves

Hart:
Nice looking hull and not what I expected and given the lack of overhang aft I can see why the designer may have plotted those curves. Not sure what he did with the information though. It looks a lot like an H-28 hull to my eye. While you are hauled out could you please give the boat a bootstripe. It will make the boat happy.

But in terms of "loading up" the bow I don't think that should be a concern.
You do not have any aft overhang to add bouyancy aft as you heel. And look at how much deadrise you have at the transom. You have a lot. Now imagine heeling the boat over. How far would you have to heel before you started immersing signifigant volume aft. A lot. I'd say up to 25 maybe 30 degrees you are not going to immerse enough volume aft to seriously disturb the trim of the boat.

My son Max works for Lockheed-Martin in the Flight Sim group. He loves his work. He likes it when he gets to interact with the real pilots and demonstrates the simulator.
