2211[bolger] Re: Looking for Micro
- Feb 2, 2000Hi Paul, and thanks for your kind words.
As I note on the design analysis page update in my site, I've been
toying with a more sophisticated model for the Micro. Yesterday I've
completed the analysis. As anticipated, since the new model allows for
free flooding forward and aft wells, the range of stability reduces to
120 degrees, and the new DSF is 26 instead of 30 (still "offshore"
though!). A more conservative statement would be that Micro is probably
the only fully qualified coastal cruiser in his lenght class. I'll post
the new results soon.
As a general statement, if any similar design exists, I'm not aware of
it. Micro is really a stroke of genius. It combines different factors
in an incredibly balanced way...
