Appendage

An appendage is any protrusion from a vessels fairbody hull. Appendages induce drag on a moving vessel, and therefore should be considered when determining resistance and propulsion. Care should also be taken to ensure accurate placement of appendages when performing stability analysis's; an appendage considered in the weight study but missing, poorly placed, or incorrectly sized will yield an incorrect centre of buoyancy.
