In Fluidics there’s a complex observation, smooth boat hulls (in laminar flow) experience laminar cohesion.
This slows the forward motion- rough surfaces do not experience this, their dynamic is more complex, a set of “eddies” swirl about the hull improving flow by reducing cohesion.
Paint is on the Hull
I have primer for wood that is needed to prep the surface for the top side paint￼.
I like how tough it seems. I trimmed out a hollow section where the fabric paunches off the wood and it is super tough.
The three Keel planks and the Gar planks are done in two sessions.
Here is the fabric ready to start.
