Hello all, recieved email regarding LCS-2.
http://www.austal.com
If the website wont connect try using search engine. New ship criuses at half speed of 43 knots. 55 off on order.
I have seen photos at speed, with no bow wave and very little heeling at speed turns. Cost $208 million.
Regards Andrew

Found update on this ship
http://www.austal.com/index.cfm?objectid=8CB536ED-65BF-EBC1-29D0BD06A94CC667
On bottom right hand side of page open PDF file. It has size, speed and drawings of this vessel. Also speed is noted as 40 knots top speed instead of 43 half speed.
No bow wave & no rooster tail wash.
Regards to all Pussers out there:
