improvement from introducing air under a boat without steps. Of
course, if sufficient air is not let in behind a step, there will be
a lot of added drag. I will check to see if Marchaj has anything to
say about that.
John, I did not know about the keel thing on Thursday's Child and
would be skeptical that any naturally aspirated system could work on
a keel since it is so far below the water. Also, because of
increasing pressure, probably none of the air could get past the
highest openings in the keel if it did work at all.
