January 25 - Today the Team did several tests on design concepts in the tank in Norris Hall.

Pictured on the left, Trevor, Dan, and Hayden prepared several of the test boats to compare effectiveness of different skirt designs.


Pictured on the right is one of the several test hulls.  Notice the red skirt on the front of the boat which keeps a pressurized air pocket underneath the boat for lift / decreased drag.
