Understanding motor monohulls

Uses of motor monohulls

A motor monohull usually comes with one hull only and also bears a motor making it a faster option than other monohulls without motors. Multihulls usually have two or even more hulls that are connected to one another and that is what makes it stand out from the Monohulls.

Earliest hull versions were made of simple logs that were stable generally speaking and they rolled over so easily. This made it necessary to hollow the logs out, but this only helped when the hollow penetrated the buoyancy center within the log. When a load was carried in the cavity, it made the vessel even more stable. There are cases where ballast or weight can be added to the hull bottom to stabilize it even better.

Today, naval architects usually place the gravity center just below the buoyancy center and this is often achieved by using ballast or weight. The use of weights has been done since the Vikings, the Phoenicians, and the roman eras. The modern motor Monohull carries lots of ballast in an effort to maintain stability. Even the cargo ships that are laden quite heavily still find it necessary to use ballast to facilitate weight distribution
