Re: Boat thrust calculator?
I'm replacing the stock motor with a different one, hence my need for new calculations.
My current motor isn't capable of pushing my boat at hull speed. It might turn out that hull speed is impractical, in which case I'll dial back my expectations. But I won't know that until I can find something that can do the math for me. While I find hydrodynamics interesting, I don't find it interesting enough to get a college degree in it.
I'm sure someone, somewhere has already built an online calculator to do this math, or at least built an equation where I can plug numbers into it and get an answer. It doesn't even have to be exact, just close enough.
