mmmmmmmm..... computer, CFD program, and then test tank, then come back and tell me that again.....!! sorry not really possible to design a hull to imitate a jack plate -
you can tweak a hull a lot of ways like.......:
stepped hull = yes,
vortex generators = yes
draglets = yes
By fitting the engines on a jack plate you would move the datum aft and the centre of pressure further aft thereby shifting momentum forward.. has it got a water pickup and bow ballast tank??
still looks like fun tho....... but looks too heavy and a little slow for my liking.....
