    Hello All

    Played around with Freeship alot in the past few weeks, but are wondering what other freeware programs are out there for the amature/novice/hobbyist designer to play with.

    I have been using Hullform as my main software since 1994. It is still available as version 9p and is free. Delftship free is also good.

    You can also find Maxsurf free version to try, Delftship is good as FRD said, also may be polycad and Fastship demo can be played.
