RT it took me a few minutes to type it. I got some Carpal Tunnel in the one finger I have been using so I switched fingers and immediately decided that wasn't a good idea as the same thing would happen to that finger as well so now I use a pencil. I peck w the eraser end. It's a day for confessions. I have a finger dexterity problem or I'd use 10 fingers but I may try again soon.

So what's the idea here, Eric? You hoping this thread will creep around to something you're actually interested in?

Here, I'll help you out. Boats with buttock lines that run halfway up the bi-quadra line don't do very well in a following sea if the waves are the square of the quarter-line multiplied by the wave frequency. If the waves are equal or above this three-dimentional measurement then a hull with a splayed chine on the forward portion of the hull that eases into a quadratron chine faired into the yahoodie between the transom and the maximum transverse brindle brace is required.

However this can only be achieved with a fiberglass hull because the required trim-set measurement relative to the brindle brace can only be achieved with this material. If aluminum is selected as the build material then a novella chine must be substituted for the splayed chine and the yahoodie moved much farther forward. Also, in order to make the aluminum hull more forgiving in a following sea, the after portion of the hull must conform to the bi-angled freeboard curve which is determined by multiplying the calculated draft of the hull times the square root of the straight-line distance between the yahoodie and the transverse brindle brace.

I believe you will find that this conforms to the current thinking regarding the relationship between hull efficiency and the curve angle of the novella chine.

RTF--- A yahoodie is the one term I used that is actually real. But not in boats. It is the name of a section of the wing on almost every jet transport ever made.

OK Marin go get some coffee now and consider taking another course on boat design.

I hung on every word though.http://www.trawlerforum.com/forums/i...sk/popcorn.gif

Jennifer hit the nail on the head, re coined name Topic Creep! TC is what got technology to the point it currently stands and TC is a GOOD Thang - IMHO
Math, physics, space exploration and other things as well as many inventions reached their pinicals due to Topic Creep! Think where we'd be without TC... which keeps us all thinking!! Well, most of us that is. - LOL

I don't give a rip in hell if you read my stuff or not or if you can figure out what I say if you try to. Read what you want, ignore what you want. A poster can write whatever he pleases in whatever form he pleases. What are you, the spelling police?

What's the point in posting something if people can't understand it?

They teach that stuff in school for a reason.

I always understand it...not too difficult...there's the web to explain it if I don't understand something and care to decipher one or two abbreviations I don't know right off the bat.

For those that don't like so much here in TF...for the life of me I don't understand why they stay and complain so much.

After having kids...I thought the little boy tantrums were over in my life...

I don't support it. It bleeds over into every day life.
I personally think it makes a person sound illiterate or just plain lazy.

The written word is becoming a lost thing in many ways.

At least let it die with dignity not hacked to pieces by lazy incompetent bums.

Are the lazy incompetent bums those who write that way or the ones who don't keep up with the times?

There's a big difference between writing novels and professional writing compared to texts, emails and forum jabber...heck some posters aren't worth listening to no matter HOW they write their input.....

(you are in the keeper bunch no matter what your pet peeves are...)
