    Looking at the spray on Britannia : perhaps there is possibility of causing a Coandă effect in the positive, from her hull / fuselage form ?

    Pivot point is the same for all boats : 520 mm (+/- 2mm) above MWP (waterplane) ~ 2050 mm from centreline (+/- 2mm).

    Absolutely, positively Laser

    I think you are forecasting the future ………

    The person (most likely a committee) who designed this boat, in the words of Francis Herreshoff “can’t draw”.

    There must surely be stamped on every drawing : PRELIMINARY ONLY ~ NOT FOR BUILDING PURPOSES - and someone has used them !!

    The YouTube video was interesting, but bloody hell, talk about a load of overkill to deal with the a straightforward forward matter of dealing (consideration) with something that should have been dealt with at first instance as part of global engineering.

    Exactly !!!

    I’ll be surprised if the forebody is not changed on NZ in near future or at least is in the program of future modification.

    Corrugated underside works a treat ?

    In photographs to date so far, the crew (NZ) appear to be further forward compared to AM.

    Perhaps more drag, but the lift (L/D), leeway and heel may produce the optimum outcome.

    Team NYYC

    Perhaps riding low may be less induced drag (and heel) than riding high ~ when considering the Global outcome. Having the potential to ride low in various sea states may be to ones advantage.

    I wouldn’t read anything in the negative (strange) into the fact that the KIWIS haven’t sailed to date.

    Hull / Deck Geometry

    I think AM wins out in the fore-body treatment (geometry) compared to NZ.
