Smile Hull resistance, speed , drag

When I was into offshore sailing the advantages of a long skinney boat , a multihull was of great interest.

The AYRS published math tools to work out the numbers but they were beyond my use.

So they built a calculator.

HULL RESISTANCE CALCULATOR Hope it still works!

For folks interested in the theoretical advantages of slim hulls , and light weight it may be of interest.

Should be of interest to slow fat boat owners too.

enjoy

It's a zip file, open it, unzip, click on
"HULL RESISTANCE CALCULATOR.htm"
and it should open, it did for me.

Hope this helps.
