any reply on my comments, dwightlooi? (not pushing or something, but you replied to everybody else so it might you missed them)
Sorry, I haven't been looking for a while. Anyway, a few things...
(1) The funnel stack is supposed to go in the middle of the top of the superstructure, then branch off to both sides going down to the engine room along the port and starboard sides of the superstructure.
(2) The hull for is intended to be a blend of semi-planning and displacement designs. As mentioned earlier, the chins are very round. But the keel and the aft bottoms are flatten, and the bow is an extreme knife profile. The idea is that the ship won't pan like the Freedom class, but the bow will rise slightly. We are not shooting for a 2.5 speed-to-length ratio. We are shooting to bring it from 1.35 to 1.6 or thereabouts. The only objective is to get a 450 ft ship to top 30 knots without prodigious amounts of power.
(3) I thought about reconfiguring the rudders, but haven't got around to it yet.
