Powerboat Design and Performance

by Pike, Dag

CAD $64.00

Pike’s long overdue analysis and review of modern powerboat design and operation explores how and why powerboats developed, and how design affects control and performance. He assesses a range of hull designs for pros and cons, and weighs in on engine types and their influence on performance. All factors influencing vessel operation are discussed, including optimizing performance in varied sea conditions and matching speed to sea state, coping with tidal races, manoeuvring in tight spaces, and ensuring crew safety.
