That is what the first part of this thread was about. The AI hull is a low rocker hull. Low rocker hulls slice through waves. Low rockered kayak hulls, when loaded gear, supplies, and water, will tend to submarine. Boat designers employ large volume bows, wave deflectors/foils, and rockered hulls and outriggers to avoid the submarining while maintaining control in difficult situations.
Sorry if you thought I was hav'n a go mate. That wasn't my intention. I get what you mean with the hull design but I think, like others, that the best way to solve any submarining issues is to have an add-on rather than a hull reshape. For every advantage in a reshape, there is a trade off. An add-on deflector would have 1 extra advantage in that it is removable when not needed, but of course the disadvantage is attachement to the hull and remembering when you go to attach it that you left it back in the shed 500 miles away. I don't want the AI to loose the 'get wet' fun factor. Only when the hull takes submarining literally will I agree to a hull redesign.
Thanks for the thread Keith. I think we are all learning a bit from this one.
Don't take life too seriously................it ain't permanent.
