The Pure Full Displacement hull is differentiated from other hulls based upon two form fundamentals: longitudinal symmetry and displacement to length ratio (D/L). Longitudinal symmetry refers to the degree to which the stern shape matches the bow shape. The image of a barge quickly enters the mind. A barge is highly symmetrical and seaworthy, but does not have ideal longitudinal symmetry and therefore is not very sea kindly. A simple way to describe what is desired is that a hull with good symmetry will have V-shaped sections and sharp waterlines at both ends.
