Models of a number of different planing boat designs were towed in smooth water to provide data for guidance in designing aircraft rescue boats and similar high-speed craft. Resistance, trim, rise, and wetted surface were determined for each design for either standard or comparable conditions of hull loading and center of gravity location. The test data, lines, and hull form characteristics for each design are presented in a design data sheet. The resistances of the different designs are compared, and reasons given for significant differences.
