    Looks like a new design Olof. You need to come up with your own drawings. That's part of the design process.

    Why don't you start by using a program like Hullform. The free version. Put in your inputs and it should generate an initial shape to those inputs. Then you are free within the program to modify the results as you see fit.

    When i designed the boat i tried to get so smal water resistans as possible, but i havent count on the byonce yet.




    I have ben designing the boat in school and solidworks and autocad is the onley programs i can use. Hullform is it hard to use?
