AbstractCanadian inshore fishing vessels have been constrained by length restrictions. In order to meet increased operational demands on these hulls, Naval Architects have reduced length to beam and beam to draft ratios beyond those of other small ships. This has placed them outside the range of many established industry standards of performance, and so designers have had no reliable method of evaluating their basic hydrodynamic performance. This paper describes the development of simple resistance standards for wide, deep fishing boat hull forms, based on the analysis of the resistance data obtained at the Institute for Marine Dynamics. It then uses these standards to evaluate some typical modern fishing boat hull forms.
