    I've read & re-read that chapter - I am just beginning to understand how skirts work (or should work) and then you suddenly understand, for example, why Barry Palmer's (SevTec) skirt is the way it is - and why many current skirts plough-in.



    I still havn't got it yet - but I am beginning to know what I don't know (the second step in learning - 'conscious incompetance'!).

    Most of the stuff in that book is over my head (math wise). However after experimenting on my own craft and running into real problems I can start understand about half of what I've read - and loving it. I'm still totally lost on the charts though.



    Would Barry Palmer's Sevtec skirt not work so well if there was no compartmentalization? Or is the compartmentalization required just because of the unique bow braking system?

    OOOoo that reminds me of the Airspree - anyone remember that one?!

    It was a two seater integrated job with a DONAResque front end - but much elongated taking the appearance of a human nose! I 'think' the nose extended right down almost to the skirt ground contact point and as such wasn't fully amphibious...



    I don't know how it performed and if there were any benefits

    After bashing the top of my head, I had to trim the leading edge. However it was starting to have a Donar-like cutting bow edge to it.
