Re: Aerated Power Boat Bottoms /Sneakeasy
- I believe that Project Amazon, an around-the-world singlehander also
had an aeration scheme. The boat was designed by Eric Sponberg, but
as I recall, the aeration was the owners design. Sponberg's web site
doesn't have details of the design anymore. Maybe someone out there
- I just heard from someone on the WB forum who's been around Hunter's Child
and confirmed that it does in fact have the aeration system. She's going to
ask Steve Pettingill how it worked for me.
