Default RE: Canard configuration airboat CG ?

@Altered1, thanks for the feedback.

This boat will have rear sponsons, with puller prop in the back of the CG. I will post a sketch in the next few days.

But you say something that makes sens. As I am mostly interested in maximizing speed in streight line, having the CG upper, close to the prop axis point, will increase efficiency of the power plant and will make the adjustments easier. I will need to make the boat wider for lateral stability, but is already 12" as you suggested right? May be installing the battery in the back of the engine, but I need to analize if this really gives benefits?
