Re: Modern Hull forms and Motion Comfort
This question is not to make a point but genuinely for information...
I have read that, in ocean races that have been hit by unexpected storms over the last number of decades, the percentage of boats that survive / finish has been steadily dropping... this is offered as evidence that older higher displacement designs have better performance in bad weather (performance being a complicated matter, including speed, motion, crew comfort, etc.)
Can you comment?
