Towing tank resistance test

building

By the end of last week, we managed to take the finished hull to the towing tank facilities at TU Berlin to conduct our experiments on the resistance vs. speed. The aXatlantic made her very first contact with water and also did a very good job as the test results and the below pictures and videos of the waves and wake show.

A big thank you again to Prof. Cura Hochbaum and his team of technicians around Karsten Rieck for this great opportunity and their help!
