    I am using Towing criteria Wizard and it just keeps giving me this error: "Freeboard 0 is missing" Why can't this software calculate the freeboard itself? I am sure it knows the Depth from geometry file!

    I am a new user of GHS and I found this command booklet and the other instruction booklet totally useless for a beginner. Does anybody have any ideas of how to start? There is no link between the commands. I think I would need a book including some procedures and samples.

    Go to and look at their support section 'run time' files etc
    It takes a while to learn the powerful macro language used by GHS.
