    Dear altruist,

    I would be grateful to you if you could help me how to calculate block coefficient, prismatic coefficient of a multihull vessel.

    Thanks in advance.

    Generally, they are only calculated for the hulls individually because hull separation will have more effect than either Cb or Cp.
