    Godzilla produces a hull offset text file that can be imported into FreeShip using the surfaces option.

    You need to enter the correct number of waterlines and stations when you import. Also you need to set the hull values for length, beam and draft. If you do not do this to set the coordinate space you will get all stations showing on one side.

    You may also need to do a bit of fairing as Godzilla could give you some lumps and bumps that typically do not contribute much. Hence if you have a lrage number of waterlines and stations there is a lot of work involved in fairing.
