Thanks for the suggestions.

John Letcher has promoted his "relational geometry" system as better at dealing with surface intersections. I'm curious to see what Ventura and Guedes discuss.

Thanks... looks promising. It would appear that the new VPP is also allowing for leeway as an independent variable, although the document is not very clear about it (or anything else ;-). Anyway, leeway needs to be recalculated during every iteration loop for good results. The effective lenght calculation will certainly be better than the old one.

There are some clues on page 21 chapter 4.2.2.4. http://www.orc.org/rules/ORC%20VPP%2...ion%202012.pdf
What I am missing is where is zero x stem or stern, and what unit (meter, feet).
And how is LSM0 is computed. Is it a recursive computation, since depth correction for section does include LSM0 term ?

Thanks.
Joakim could possibly comment on this?

Thank you Uli - the Dehler 33 bow now looks good!
