RESISTANCE TEST RESULTS FOR 1/12 SCALE MODELS OF THREE PLANING CATAMARANS

Still water reistance tests were conducted on three hard chine planing catamaran models. Total resistance, LCG rise and change in running trim were measured. Hull spacing and displacement were the fundamental parameters which were varied. The models were built to a linear scale ratio of 12:1 and represented a full scale boat length of 65 ft. overall. The full scale speed range was from 10 knots to 30 knots. Two of the three hull designs were symmetric about the centerplane and differed from each other only in details of the lines. The third set of hulls were asymmetric about the centerplane.
