PLANING HULL: A type of hull shaped to glide easily across the water at high speed.
PORT: The left hand side of the boat when you are looking forward.
PORT TACK: Wind across the port side.
POWER BOAT: A boat propelled by mechanical means.


Planing Hulls--Planing hulls are designed to ride on top of the water, regardless of the weight of the boat. The flatter the bottom, the easier it is to get on plane. Also, less power is needed to attain high speeds with a flatter hull.

Planing hulls are flat-bottomed and skim across the water.
Displacement hulls have round bottoms and plow through the water. They are more stable but not as fast as planing hull boats.

Planing Hull - A type of hull shaped to glide easily across the water at high speed.
Plimsol Line - The mark on the hull of a ship that shows where the waterline is when the boat is at full capacity. ...

planing hull
A boat hull designed to ride on top of the water rather than plowing through it.
pleasure boating
Recreational day boating in runabouts, deck boats, pontoon boats, bowriders and sportboats.

planing hull - A hull specifically designed to reduce friction and increase speed.
planking - The wooden boards that made up the surface of the ship's deck.

Planing Hull - A type of hull shaped to glide easily across the water at high speed.
Plate - A smooth, flat, relatively thin piece of metal formed in sheets by beating, rolling or casting; used in the construction of ship's hulls.

Planing Hull - A type of hull shaped to skim easily across the water at high speed.
Point (compass) - Eleven and a quarter degrees. The compass was traditionally divided into 32 divisions of the 360 card.

As usual, planing hull power boats suffer wind effects more than others, but I have also seen exactly this docking defeat moderately experienced skippers in displacement hull boats (even full-keeled sailboats).

Planing:
The Planing Hull form is configured to develop positive dynamic pressure so that its draft decreases with increasing speed.

(12" dia., 15" pitch, left hand rotation, 1" shaft) PLANING HULL A hull that lifts and skims the surface of the water causing the stern wake to break clean from the transom.

Planing hull -A type of hull shaped to glide easily across the water at high speed.
Preventer- line and/or tackle which limits the movement of the boom, usually for the purpose of preventing accidents or-An extra rope, to assist another- ...

Planing Hull: A hull built in a way to support gliding at high speeds
Plotter: A nautical tool to plot a course on a map or grid of latitudes and longitudes
Port: Left to the vessel; a harbor ...

Planing hull boats ride on top of the water, climbing over their own bow wave created by a limited displacement capability.

strakes
Small linear protrusions that run longitudinally on both sides of the keel to give a planing hull lift and lateral stability.
stringers
Internal beams and braces that give a fiberglass hull structural support.

A boat that has foils under its hull onto which it rises to plane across the water surface at high speed. See displacement and planing hulls.
Hydrography
The study of the earth's waters.

craft (those that "float" or are supported by the static buoyancy derived fro the water that their hulls displace), non-displacement craft (those that are supported by the dynamic lift of hydrofoils or other lifting surfaces, such as planing hulls), ...

' The Melges 24 introduced a planing hull shape with a huge rig and deep, bulbed keel and no attempt at an interior.

A type of hull that only floats, even when in motion, as opposed to a type of hull that allows a boat to skim across the surface of the water. See planing hull.
displacement speed ...

PLANING HULL - A type of hull shaped to glide easily across the water at high speed.
PORT - The left side of a boat looking forward. A harbor.
PRIVELEGED VESSEL - A vessel which, according to the applicable Navigation Rule, has right-of-way.

Displacement hull boats have a maximum hull speed based on characteristics such as waterline length, draft, smoothness, etc. To overcome this limitation, planing hulls (speedboats) and hydrofoils rise out of the water at higher speeds.
