Mark, very informative video. I knew about the formula for determining hull speed but didn't know the math behind that formula.

Very interesting, thanks. I remember calculating our sailboat's hull speed years ago, but wasn't aware of hump speed and the rest. Always heard planing boats framed as "escaping" the hull speed wave...way more detail in that video. The varying amounts of friction and why was interesting.
