Reynolds-Averaged Navier–Stokes computations are  not fully capable of considering both viscous and rotational effects of non laminar viscous flow on an efficient cruising hull in varied sea states.    I've developed my own model, "Random Unchecked Motion"  which shows that for classic Con Tiki style cruising non laminar enhanced turbulence is critical for maximum effective leeway and full utilization of available currents.   I chartered and specially outfitted test boat which recently completed a stealth cruise.   It conclusively proved my theories, and also showed the unexpected fringe benefit of sliding over Texas Reef without damage.   This allows the benefit of a robust semi custom Origami design to be realized in a flimsy fiberglass hull without expensive retrofitting.  The passive inertial dampening aspects of robust foliage growth also helps minimize seasickness.

Although the new antifoulant is 100% organic the chemist working on the formula didn't understand the goal was to retard growth, not enhance it.

(thinking would be nice with a cartoon similiar to the far side daily desk calender's with the chemist in a lab coat, two diagrams showing bottom with growth and without, his boss pointing out diagrams, etc)
