/Miscellany Boat Displacement

I offer a sailboat performance calculation software package and a web-based performance calculator on this site. I also have a page that shows the formulas.

Because of this, I get tons of search referrals from Google and other search engines resulting from folks searching for information on how to calculate boat displacement. Here is the answer: you don't really calculate displacement - displacement is really just a fancy, scientific, way of saying weight! If you know what your boat weighs, you know its displacement. Simple, eh?
