Sub culture wrote:Leaning in to a turn is caused by the conning tower/sail. As the rudder yaws the stern of the boat, the sail/tower- which is in effect a fixed control surface- increases it's angle of attack resulting in an increase in pressure on one side- this will tip the boat over to one side.
Ahhh...but I have (also) experienced the rolling effect even with subs running on the surface......
Leelan Lampkins is in the process of refining his Nautilus. The obvious difference is the redesigned tail. Noting that Aronnax thought the monster might be a giant narwhale, Leelan was looking for a surface profile more like a whale than a shark. The new tail fin is normally below the waterline and in any case not obvious even when rolling seas expose the propeller.
