Hydrostatics and hydrodynamics are ruled strictly by immersed volume as defined by wetted surface. To say otherwise presumes the water is somehow intelligent and prescient, sensing what is above it and out of its reach. By your definition, every boat with a bow overhang is perennially ahead of it bow wave, no matter what its speed.

A planing boat reduces its immersed volume due to lift, but the volume is still there, and still creates a bow wave from which it cannot escape.

Cal,

Except the 46 I never have liked Nordhavn. I wonder if it was an in house extension? But whatever itís faults Iíll bet that big Nordhavn is fast given enough power. But her faults couldnít have been too bad as they are selling them right?

But in my mind this excercise I felt compelled to do led me to think a fourth hull designation.
Planing
Semi-planing
Displacement
Full Displacement

Too many of these on the fence designs exist. Haterass .. the typical big Hatt boats of about 65í we usta call houseboats. Very hard to classify by most normal methods. From a hull shape standpoint they arnít FD and the are by hull shape actually much like a planing hull. A lot like the Chris-Craft of the early 50ís. Yet I think they are called FD by most all owners that would be offended if I called them SD. But I could be convinced to call them ďDisplacementĒ boats. They are (as designed) and powered, not capable of more than a tad over calculated hull speed. But I really donít know much about the boat.

Only supportable classification would put them in the underpowered SD classification.
But the option of calling them just displacement boats has merrit. Itís not fully supportable from a hull shape based classification standpoint ... as I have alwaysinsisted upon ... but it may be better than calling them clearly what they are not.

I only mentioned the big Hattís but there are many others. Lots or most of the DeFevers are similar.
If I see another post to this end Iíll start another thread. OK I will.

Not a booby trap at all. Easily recognizable. Nordhavn has expended much effort on getting their rudder forward design to perform well. Especially on the extended hulls resulting in the 52, 60, 63 and a few others.

BTW, without the running surface extension, the flatter immersed under water aft section on the N62 is common to many Selenes. Somewhere I have a picture of a S58 we were considering.

Tom,
HaHa .... I don’t follow Nordhavns and was thinking it may be a Selene.
So what does Nordhavn call it? FD I suppose.
And I was refering to caltex re the bobby trap. Of course he probably just thought “holy cow ... I wonder what he’ll think of this” but since he didn’t mention me I was only assuming and yea I know about the assuming saying. But I thought who else could he be refering to?

You guys would all do well to toss all your ill-conceived presumptions and, as I recommended at the very beginning of this thread, read Dave Gerr's The Nature of Boats. It's winter, no better time to do it and eminently readable. After that, spend some time in big boat yards and look at various boats on the hard.

I agree however looking at boats isn't necessary because as I keep repeating it's simply the SL ratio the hull was designed for that determines one of all too often repeated designations. Dave Gerr's information is also contained in the Propeller Handbook amongst many other books on the subject.

Could you point out on where the bow wave is on this boat? I mean the one the bow is not in front of.

Well yes, but that means you have to know what the maximum speed is. SL is that speed divided by the square root of the water line (a displacement speed boat having one of about 1.5 or less), and thus comes by default of the actual boat design... which includes weight, powertrain, and hullform.
A

One way to get at it is to measure the quarter beam buttock angle, typically about 7 degrees or more of a "full displacement" boat. Another way to get at it is the prismatic coeffecient, as another poster discussed., which is displacement divided by 64, in turn divided by the area below the waterline at midship times the waterline length. That'll be a little over .50 and under .6 for a displacement boat, over .7 for a planing boat. You'll have to read up to understand how those measurements are taken and what they mean. So can arrive at various types of displacements (full, semi, planing) via a number of hull designs, as illustrated. Then you get into the powertrain calculations and can derive SL from there.

See that's the mistake that keeps jerking this around, none of that matters, not horsepower, not reduction and not buttock angle. A competent naval architect designs a hull for certain performance and depending on the SL ratio it's designed to operate at defines it, period. How it's designed to operate at that SL ratio doesn't matter, a planing boat can have a flat bottom or a deep vee with lifting strakes yet either way it's designed to operate at above approximately an SL ratio of 2.5. A full displacement boat can also have a wide variety of hull configurations yet it's still defined as full displacement by virtue of being designed to operate below an SL ratio of 1.34. All the rest is just distraction and mental masturbation.

You've got it completely backwards, think about it a little: exactly HOW is it designed to have a lower SL?

A good one by Fish53.
But at what point is the hull not fully ďinĒ the water? IMO as soon as the bow begins to rise it is not.
How many FD hulls would qualify to that? I canít remember when my FD hull starts to rise but it may be before her usual cruising speed.

Thatís easy or obvious.
Just give the hull a buttock angle and WLL that will play ball w whatever kind of boat you want.

As is evident by the name "full displacement" that type of hull does not change the volume of water it displaces when at rest or underway. Apparently I need to fix my scanner or get a new one so I can just post pages from the books previously cited.
