Thanks very much for the article about Happy Clam, including the offsets. Terrific !
You can immediately see that Happy Clam doesn’t make any attempt to direct the wash leaving the transom downward to provide lift. The photos of Happy Clam underway clearly show the stern “squatting” significantly and given that its draft is given as 11.5”, I wonder what minimum depth it would need to operate?
Given that Rescue Minor seems to achieve the best fore & aft balance, I wonder why the later designs trended away from what I would have thought was a very desirable characteristic??
