Re: Modern Hull forms and Motion Comfort

Good to know...I sometimes get caught up just trying to understand the physics arguments sides of things I sometimes miss where the post or threads going as a whole..but
it's been a good thread...If I were a young yacht designer wanna-be..I'd be reading threads like this every spare minute....and trying to understand my customer's true needs vs. his/her likes..and nostalgia for what they grew up sailing on...vs again what they really want designed/built for them...the young sailboat buyer today is more informed I would guess than a couple decades ago...probably alot in part due to websites such as this...and older buyers already often know what they want whether it's on the cover of Sail Magazine or "Good Ol' Boat"... I'd venture to say.....

Gosh, I love it when you call me Maestro but now, with my first grandchild, it is Grampy Maestro. Or is that Maestro Grampy. Yeah, that sounds better.

I believe he's attested to already being there.

Re: Modern Hull forms and Motion Comfort

My boat was designed 75 years ago and is very different in alot of ways. She moves along very nicely and points extremely well. The "numbers" just don't seem to make sense to modern day boaters, who are suprised buy her performance (the head stay is movable to make it a cutter).

Re: Modern Hull forms and Motion Comfort

From a purely visual and subconscious aesthetic ....minus lots of formulas and numbers...and minus the scientific jargon of the day...in a purely visceral nautical reaction....in a way that can't be quantified...I'd say that looks like a sweet boat...and i'd bet some neptune notes or "life bucks" that it is what indeed it appears to be.... over some other newer unproven craft any day of the week...just m.h.o.

Re: Modern Hull forms and Motion Comfort

My boat has 40-50,0000nm under the keel, one of the owners who had been skipper of a 100'+ schooner, another boat about the same size and has sailed all over the world, referred to her as a "good sea boat", when the weather gets dicey she has a nice solid safe feel. When it comes to boats I am realistically cautious and I will trust my life in her.

Wolf:
I agree. That is a sweet looking hull. It's a bit on an antique in terms of modern performance standards but it sure is eaasy on the eye. Kind of like a nice old sports car.
I notice how symetrical it is fore and aft.

Re: Modern Hull forms and Motion Comfort

Jeff, I understand what you're getting at in your explanation of the relative entry effects of plumb vs overhung bow but I see more factors in the equation than that. There are two factors that I see which throw large variations into the relative overall motion of a hull. One is that the acute angle of the bow and the amount of overhang vary widely and affect the relative force in some complex ways. The other is that unless the angle created by a wave face equals the angle of the overhang, there is a varying time factor as the crest of a wave proceeds along the length of the overhang. Depending on the slope of the wave face and the shape of the hull, the actual force over time transmitted to the hull would vary widely. I don't think it's as easy as just saying that the plumb entry makes for a gentler ride across all conditions. I realize this an old thread but the topic is relevant.
