Hi fellow mariners, winter approaches time to get a couple of projects under way. Is there a general rule for the positioning of the pontoons in order not to flip over at speed. I am using a nqd water jet for propulsion mounted in the centre hull. The pontoons will be hydroplane shaped with a step half the length of the lower surface. Aluminium tubes will run from one pod thru the main hull into the other pod. There will not be any panel shrouding between the pods and the main hull like a true hydroplane. Overall length about 30cm not sure of the width yet. Have seen a few foam builds on utube but really no help. Any help would be appreciated
