1271Re: Rescue Minor Model
- Aug 31, 2006Thanks for posting the model photos.
In comparing them to the plans it looks like the model does not
capture the tunnel shape well at all. The plans show an arc in the
top of the tunnel running from the forward end to the aft end. I
don't see that present in the model pictures. It may just be my
poor eyesight. Was that one of the simplifying moves that had to be
made to make the construction work?
This shape is important, suspect, since it would tend to add a bit
of fluid dynamic lift to the flow of the water running under the
boat. I keep seeing ol' Bernoulli hanging around there.
