    Is there a way to figure out the surface area of a hull in freeship so the weight of the design can be calculated? I have a laminate schedule, so it is just a matter of surface area.

    It's in the Layer Properties, area per layer and you can add density and thickness to get weight.

    Have you tried Freeship Plus?

    Raggi, I thought Freeship Plus wasn't going to be released for a long time. Is it available now? If so, where?

    When I installed it it asked me if I wanted to overwrite the existing files, looked at the details and the existing files had a size of zero, chose overwrite and it is working fine

    My Freeship plus and Delftship files are not sharable. Since I've started in Delftship seems I'll have to stick to it or redo it all.

    On my computer I had mixed up "Program files" and "Programfiler" (Norwegian Windows) :)

    As default Free!ship Plus to install into "c:\Program Files\Free!ship+" directory. After this you can move this directory Free!ship+ into other disk or catalog, for sample d:\Science\FreeshipPlus. Only uninstall program don't work after this (move back or delete directory freeship+). Delftship can move at the same directory with Freeship+.

    Regards
