Abstract : Additional experimental verification is presented of the reduction of planing boat drag which can be achieved by using longitudinal strips forward of the stagnation line to deflect the whisker spray from the hull surface. In addition, graphs for determining the high-speed positions of the spray boundary and stagnation lines are given, to assist designers in locating spray deflectors on planing boats in the most effective positions.
