Re: Boat thrust calculator?

There are so many variables when moving a hull through water that I would think it much easier to ask others with the same boat what they are powered with. Generally, a series of boats have the same engine because the designer has worked all that our before the boat was even built.

"Any idiot can make a boat go; it takes a sailor to stop one." Spike Africa aboard the schooner Wanderer in Sausalito, Ca. 1964.
“Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.” ― Kenneth Grahame, The Wind in the Willows
