WRONG HULL FORMS?

For fast boats, progress in propulsion systems and advancements in materials that are lightweight but strong have made hulls go faster. There has not been corresponding progress, however, in the area of seakeeping characteristics. Although there has been considerable advanced research conducted on fast hull hydrodynamics, the results have yet to be adopted by designers and find their way into industry. Various graphs illustrate a text explaining how this can be remedied, and seakeeping theory applied to the hull design of fast boats.
