Software for Freeboard calculation

Hi there!

I am a Naval Architect based in Singapore. I am doing a lot of work on Automation and software development in the marine/oil sector. I have developed a software which can calculate Freeboard for any vessel as per the latest Loadline Convention (ICLL 2005). The software has the following features:

1. A graphic user interface for easy use
2. Easy and intuitive data input
3. The Loadline mark and different freeboards(Summer, Winter,Tropical etc.) shown in output
3. Automatic generation of a detailed word report demonstrating the entire calculations and the Loadline mark.
4. FAQs on crucial aspects of the calculations.
5. Video help files for using the software.

I have tested the software thoroughly, and I am looking for some experienced people to try it so that I can improve it. If anyone of you is interested, I can send a beta version to you. Please respond if interested.

If you can provide me any sample freeboard calculations to test my software, it will be really helpful.

Thanks and best regards

Prem Shankar

I wish I could help but I do not know in depth the rules for calculation of freeboard, nor do I have much experience in these calculations. However, I'm also a software developer for naval architecture calculations and I know from my own experience, you have to be very courageous, and perseverance, having a lot of faith in yourself. So I want to encourage you to continue with your application and want it to be welcomed with interest by our community. Since then, any help to perform some so tedious calculations should be welcomed. Good Luck.
