This is a 1/10 scale model of our current design with an altered, rounded hull.  It was made using a molded polyethylene shell with auto body filler.

 

We tested it in our tow tank to find wave drag at various velocities.

 

Other options for hull design include:

  • Catamaran Hull
  • Displacement/Planing Hull
