More Of A Good Thing: The Secrets Of Tunnel Boat Design - 13th Edition
A book review by Greg Terzian

...introduction from Mark Rotharmel: F1 champion & host of Powerboat Television


AeroMarine Research® has received testimonials from highly successful users of the "Secrets of Tunnel Boat Design", "History of Tunnel Boat Design", and "Secrets of Propeller Design" books, the "Tunnel Boat Design Program" software for tunnel hull performance analysis, the "Vee Boat Design Program" software for Vee hull performance analysis and the "PropWorks2" software from over 40 countries around the world.

Many successful experts in today's tunnel boat business have the benefit of these unique AR® tools - including leading tunnel boat designers; popular builders; winningest racers; fastest record holders. Even the most powerful nautical force in the world (can you guess who they are?) uses AR® software!  Many users still ask us to keep their trade names confidential....the reasons for this are always the same - "those that know how a tunnel boat really works aren't telling - they're just doing it!".
