This sketch is illustrating the basics of my New Design Concept
I assumed that since nobody is on Board, no galley needed nor sleeping beds, etc. I could easily play with the deck surface.
By narrowing the beam, another direct consequence was to keep the deck sheer line above the water when the boat is tilted.
Using a Chine hull, I further found that the tilted drawing presented a sort of “immersed vertical wall”…
I told myself that this feature could help contrasting better the lateral “Drift” when Close Hauled.
Of course nothing is proven yet since no models of this kind are in the water at the moment.
The experimental work started with the class M “Diamond” where the principle is applied to a round hull still under construction.
This work is now applied for economic reasons to New Footy designs called : Futynette and Futinett still under construction.
Similarly a couple of RG65 are shortly presented
Any comments ?
