Registration is open for the Fifth Chesapeake Powerboat Symposium, which is set for June 14-15 at St. John’s College in Annapolis, Md.

Presented by SNAME, the symposium will feature presentations on all aspects of powerboat design and construction, particularly relating to hull design and analysis; materials and fabrication; structural mechanics; failure analysis and repair; modeling and simulation; tank testing; software, electronics and systems; offshore racing developments; propulsion systems; regulatory developments; and human factors in control of high-performance boats.

SNAME said the symposium will begin with a special tribute to the late Joe Koelbel, "A Most Unforgettable Individual."

A respected naval architect, Koelbel was a SNAME member specializing in the design and development of hull forms for displacement and planing craft. He was an expert in hydrodynamics, bottom loading and the structures of high-speed craft and presented a number of SNAME papers on those subjects.

SNAME said 18 technical papers will be presented at the symposium by world-recognized experts in powerboat design, construction, testing and evaluation. As an added value, all papers are to be certified for continuing education credits.
