    Cheers everyone,

    trying to get my coefficients defined in Maxsurf for my fin keel sloop. However, I would like to exclude the appendages for this purpose setting the draft as the canoe body's one. But the software only gives a bunch of options that dont include defining it manually. I imported my model from Rhino if that helps.

    Thank you!

    The only solution, imo, is to remove the appendages to the model.

    Or just turn off there visibility in the surfaces menu, they are then not used in the hydro calculations .
