What is a good Prismatic Coefficient to shoot for in a 17" Sea Kayak
(Swedeform, 250 lb displacement, hard chine). I am designing in Carlson's
Chine Hull Designer and have played for a while with different hulls and got
my value down to .49. I did a bit of reading in Dave Gerr's book and he
states/implies that an ideal is .54. Does that stand true for the long and
narrow extreme of kayaks as well as other displacement boats. Am I trying
to get as low as possible? I understand what the Prismatic Coefficient is,
but I don't know what is I should try to get it to say.
