After hours of modeling and simulating boat hull designs for the 2014 competition, a displacement hull with hydrofoils was selected as the prototype (pictures at bottom). The prototype (manufactured out of wood) confirmed drag models simulated on the computer. After 15 hours of in water testing time, a consensus was made to move away from the displacement hull. The move started due to the difficulty of the hydrofoils. Efforts from the design of Prototype 13 have been translated to PropaGator 2.
