While the primary objective of most sailing vessel designs is performance under sail, auxiliary propulsion is also an important consideration. Often, the heaviest non-structural components on a sailing vessel are the engine and its fuel. Since weight reduction is key to sailboat performance, accurately sizing the engine and fuel tanks are critical to meeting performance objectives both under sail and power. Join Alex Walker for this half-hour webinar to discover how HydroComp NavCad® can be used for quick, accurate performance prediction of auxiliary-powered sailboats to appropriately size the engine, fuel consumption, and even a folding propeller to meet your design goals.
