A REVIEW OF SOME PERFORMANCE CHARACTERISTICS OF MONOHULL HIGH- SPEED SMALL CRAFT

This paper presents a review of some parametric interrelationships between size, weight, hull proportions, propulsion power, and craft speed of modern, monohull, planing-type, marine craft. Parametric relationships are presented in terms related to lifting-surface theory rather than in more conventional "naval architectural" terms such as hull volume coefficients and area coefficients. The scope of the paper includes a brief review of the technical approach used to accomplish the analysis and typical results of the work. Charts which provide a means for approximation of power/performance relationships are also presented. Performance estimates derived by means of the charts are compared with data derived from the careful and thorough testing of several full-size craft.
