Still here, but wrestling with my taxes and those of my MIL. Uggh. On the Beetlemaster, next on my list is to better understand the props/propulsion end of this. I have a copy of Jan Carlsson's software and have started doing some "what-ifs" with it. It appears to be very powerful, but we're asking it to do something that isn't straightforward ("Give us the best 150 KT props that will also give us 200 lbs of thrust each at 70 knots"). I think Jan has already been down this road for us, but I'll understand the compromises better if I see some examples.Everyone quit working on the Beetlemaster ?
Not unlike the taxes, in a way. Some people bring all their receipts to their tax guy and let him give them back the completed return. But by agonizing with the tax software myself I get to see how the system works and (maybe) how to do things smarter in the future.
