It sounds to me like Beau has worked hard on his theory, and has put a lot of thought, effort and money
into his project
. I am not an engineer
by any stretch of the imagination, I have never studied naval architecture nor boat design of any kind.
I have no thoughts as to whether Beau will succeed in his project
or not. My thought on this is to congratulate him on his attempts and encourage him all that I can.
As was mentioned earlier - I would love to see a video of this in motion at some point.
Keep working on it Beau - it will certainly not be wasted effort.
