Most of the "oil-canning" that I've heard described has occurred below or near the waterline, usually on flatter hull sections that are subjected to the rigors of both wave action and the "heave" of the hull in a seaway.
I just have not seen or heard of that. And it would surprise me greatly because all hulls, even so-called flat ones, are not really "flat," but have some curvature to them. But then again, my view here probably is more a function of my ignorance.
I'm going to post something on CSBB, as Bob Perry frequents that site, and I bet we can get a definitive answer on the issue. All joking aside, I most certainly could be very wrong. Let's find out.
