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.
