I'm working on something else but I thought in the meantime you might enjoy these. Denmark, Peer Bruun, designer. Quote "The Megin dinghy is basically a scaled down model of Skuldelev 1 (and look at the video there), one of the shipwrecks found in the Roskilde fjord in Denmark. The Skuldelev 1 has a pair of planks in the bottom set at an angle to the lateral line of the vessel, called Meginhufer. They create a step running parallel to the keel. In this step the water travels faster reducing the wave system around the hull. " You can find more here by going to links, dinghies, Megin. Or click the title above for the Danish.
