Captain’s Log – Day 12

      Step by step we are estimating the main parameters. Now, using 3D is much more easier to change dimensions and get more accurate visualization of what we really do.

     Ouh, I almost forgot – I finally finished  the calculator.  I’ve put all the formulas in a simple program, which is able to calculate immediately everything, when we change an initial parameter.  This makes our life a lots easier taking us a light years ahead on the design. Now, after a few days of crazy research and calculation, we finally get the most efficient cross section for the boat’s hulls, as well as the position of the main mast.

Also for a first time we trying to test the design in “real conditions”, using the latest simulation technology… Well, as you see on the picture, we still have to learn a lot more about this, before we get the real simulation results.
