This amazing !! thats exactly my direction !! many many thanks !!! My idea was before building the ship i wanted to cover as many technical design parameters as possible.
Indeed the major point for me is the tweaking, there are so many hull designs some are better in areas than others, as such choosing the right hull and tweaking it is the key factor, exactly like you did for one parameter which is the power for speed....
Basically i want to cover the following points (from my limited experience) in order to find my optimum hull design:
1- Optimizing hull efficiency by tweaking / adjusting hull curvature and design
2- Optimize ship handling to make it as comfortable as possible, for example extend keel to decrease rolling effect
3- Ensure that the structure i design is rigid and sea worthy not weak or has fault points.
I am sorry if im confusing you :S but this is my first time and im trying to cover a whole lot of issues!! i know some of them are minor and will not effect a small boat in a large degree but im so interested in learning im handling this small boat like an oil tanker !!!
Now what i need to do is send u the current design i wanted to work with (if im not troubling u that is) and to try and figure out the above parameters as the hull i like is called a Shoteyaa and is a rather interesting hull design. I took a ride in it and it has some great characteristics (mainly its very light, and has very little submerged area and can be deployed in shallow water, however the ship is slightly unstable and may be not comfortable in medium high water.) which is why im trying to tweak the design to improve it a bit. The design was made by traditional methods (ship yard father to soon ideology) not from an engineer perspective. If i can take that idea put it in a ship CAD software and do exactly what you did but with more parameters i can tweak the hull design and get a better handling ship !! !!!
Again thank you sooooooo much and please if i am taking too much of ur time or anything please tell i dont want to be a burden and you have been a great help so far !!!!
God bless you and many thanks
P.S sorry for the late reply im currently traveling !!
