When I started to think about the inclined waterlines as foils I was just making the mold of Aquarius. A traditional RG 65 that I have tried to make the inclined waterlines more symmetrical as possible and with the lowest possible angle with the center line.
Now we are with Aquarius, Orca and Boson the first project with inclined waterlines as foils. Boson, because the others will be derived from it.
IOM, RG 65 & Footy – Design and construction
Why not put the RC sailboats classes discussion and apprenticeship in a right technical level?
Today, with the facility in use personal computer with a infinity of free softwares for naval architecture, as many as for drawing as for calculation, the naval art is more closest to peoples.
This Blog is for teach and learn.
I invite all that enjoy the art of RC sailing to teach and to learn in this space.
I believe that we will do more share knowing in future as today the free commerce is a reality.
Why a Brazilian do a Blog in English?
Because the RC sailboat is wide as the Earth as all the others things and English is the World language.
All my thinkings and knowing about the naval art is a contribution, sometimes can be that I will be incorrect and I am the first ready to learn, and logically, as I need give the start for the questions, do not think that I do them thinking that I have all certainty that my affirmations are correct.
I invite all to start questions about design and construction techniques and also contest me, to teach and to learn.
If some kind soul want to help me and correct the texts will be very welcome and we will make a fine exercise in sharing knowledge. Make contact anywhere from comments.
