    You're probably better off with Freeship (even cheaper as its free!)

    Check the software section at the bottom of the home page of this forum

    Is it FreeShip or the free version of DelftShip which are available legitimately for free?

    Both are available for free. Delftship is a commercial fork of the open source Freeship project under the ownership of the original author.

    DELFTship free is the commercial product (DELFTship professional) with some features disabled.

    Download the latest FreeShip+ here

    It includes a good help file.

    I use Freeship, and it is quite ok for me - it helps me bring all my ideas to life, and I made the best use of it while modelling my own boat.
