    Following the kind interest of few users, I have developed a full version of Gene-Hull dedicated to the Catamaran configuration. Here attached is the spreadsheet application (ods. file that can be opened with either Open office or Libre office), the User guide and one example.

    By hoping this can be helpful for your early stage projects,

    Thanks to remarks received from Users, here attached a slight revision 2,41 , with corrections concerning the output data provided in sections 5,1, 5,4, 5,5 and 5,6 (the data gather to favor a transfer to a 3D modeller), in particular adding the C9,5 data so to provide more data density in the bow zone and so avoiding that the splines of the 3D tools creates undulation.

    By hoping your projects can take advantage of this application,

    Here is another slight revision (minor corrections in the computations for 6. "Hydrostatics of the heeled catamaran"), leading to the version 2,42 attached.
    I am also investigating about the drag components for such multihull in vew a future VPP sheet connected to Gene-Hull, here also attached is my progress regarding the residuary drag.
    By hoping your projects can take advantage of all that,
