Help. I am trying to locate information on a vessel designed by John Atkin and published in
the September 1963 issue of The Rudder (page 43). Here are the particulars: LOA 19'5"; LWL
18'0"; Beam 6'7" and draft 1'3". Box keel powered by a Palmer IH-60 pushing her 2,500
pounds to 18 mph. Any and all information would be appreciated greatly, as we might be
My main question is what would be the theoretical hull speed of a box keel design as it is not
a displacement hull. Is it?
Thanks again in advance, Cliff
