Default Setting trim tabs for high seas

I am a naval architect developing operator training classes for high-speed craft, and I am looking for reference material on setting trim tabs for operations at high speeds in large waves.

Is anyone aware of training materials, books, magazine or journal articles, etc. that discuss adjusting tabs to reduce slamming shocks while pounding through waves? I am especially interested in anything that mentions adjusting tabs on a wave by wave basis.

Thanks for your help.

There was a recent article about "rescue operations" or procedures in a boating mag (in the last 3 months) but I do not remember which one. It discussed the operation of rescue craft in different water/weather conditions and approaches. Try a search of the major mag web sites. good luck.

dakers1,

I tried to pm you but you set would not allow me to. I would like to speak with you. What is the best means by which to do so?

A friend gave me a copy of an old magazine article with lots of high performance driving tips from the experts. I could fax you a copy if you'll PM or e-mail me you fax number.
Did we meet in the Licensing Naval Architects seminar or something at IBEX a few years ago? (Short, brunette Webb grad from ABS.)
