    hello,

    anybody has a manual hydrostatic calculation sample for a catamaran yacht in excel format? I need some good reference. I couldnt understand well how to do it since i've only knew some for monohulls... Please help thanks!..

    By deduction I think so:

    I: Moment inertia of single hull

    Then:

    I(cat)= 2 x (I x (beam/2)^2)= I x beam^2 / 2

    Regards.

    ama is one hull of a catamaran
    ama CL is centerline of an ama
    Ixx is moment of inertia about the x axis. Location of the x-axis is noted in paranthesis
