Re: Full or fin keel?
outbound, you hit it. did that with a block wall I had to build for aclient once. I could see generally how to design it, BUT, I had a feeling it was not quite right. Talked to some one, he cranked a few numbers, said do it this way, even tho the design specs said do it that way! Glad I did it this way, as a 5 something quake hit a yr or so later. While I will not say the wall would not have held as the spec said, the way it was built, it did hold up with more wt behind than initially though!
Like all things, there is more than one way to skin a cat! or dog, or catfish or __________!
If someone can get a full keel to plane at 2x the hull speed of a boat, I'll buy one, if not, I'll take the fin thank you very much!
She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!
