High slamming loads that cause operator and passenger discomfort and injury have plagued high-speed boat designers and operators for decades.
The Perfect Storm panel of experts will trace the damaging slamming loads from the vessel’s point of impact when the hull crashes into a wave, through the running-surface into the material structure of the hull, then into the cockpit or pilothouse sole, seats, and the actual helm station, and lastly into the vulnerable human frame.

They’ll explain the potentials for shock reduction at every step of the way, as well as technologies to amend a vessel’s slamming behavior in various conditions, how to measure operator exposure, the value of modeling hull behavior, and predictive software solutions that can advise operators on optimal speed and handling.
