    Hi! i'm currently embarking on a project to compare the resistance of a fishing vessel with/without bulb. As for the project,i would like to use maxsurf as my software, would anybody be able to provide guidance on it, should i begin using a surface or ship?

    I do not understand your question clearly but the first thing you have to do is create the model of the hull, without a bulb. In another different project you use the previous hull and add a new surface for the bulb.
