                          peting with the US 1 metres? No he was not. I just put it
                          here because I liked it and …
                          It shows well the wave pattern that a “displacement boat”
                          produces when moving at hull speed—the characteristic
                          bow and stern wave with a hole in between. Contrast the
                          much lighter US 1 boats shown on the next page that pro-
                          duce a much shallower wave pattern when moving at a
                          similar speed to the Soling. The US 1’s are not
                          “planning” - just ploughing a shallower furrow.
