The principal planing characteristics have been obtained for two V-shaped prismatic surfaces having angles of dead rise of 20 and 40 degrees. The load, wetted lengths, resistance, center-of-pressure location, and limited draft data are presented for speed coefficients up to 25.0, beam-loading coefficients from 0.85 to 87.33, keel-wetted-length-beam ratios up to approximately 8.0, and trims up to 30 degrees.
