We use MasterCam software to design as well as plot tool paths for our CNC machine to mill the plugs for the hull, deck, etc. The computer model is translated through IGES into the FEA program to help develope the structural engineering for the boats. (We don't do have the FEA in house.)

The CFD program would be nice help predict the design of the boats to calculate wetted surface area, strake locations, deadrise, (step angles & location) for speed and handling. (We don't have that software available for our use.)

Aero dynamics are equally important to speed and handling. The compression in the tunnel that creates lift to help nuetralize the weight can have a major effect on the performance of the boat, too much can make the boat flighty & quirky in turns, not enough can make the boat slower.
Aero dynamic balance is important to the performance of the boat. Once the boat leaves the water it is faster and safer to maintain a level attitude.
Air does not like to travel in a staight line. To reduce drag it is important eliminate as many sharp edges above the chine as possible. In the end speed and handing are all about compromise.

Did Dan Lawrence from the Loan Shark Race Team get any photos of his boat? Is it still being built or has John at Offshore Concepts taken hold of it already to begin rigging??? Dieing to see some pics.

Thanks Dan, Dieing to see the pics. Stock class has always been my favorite even way back when when the boats were 24 Skaters and 25Motion with Merc 200's on them. Best bang for the buck class in Offshore.
