    I've downloaded a couple of the free programs. Carene 2002 and Carlsons Hull Design. I'm naking some of the darndest geo-shapes. but nothing that resembles a boat hull.
    X, Y, Z? windows that change their own numbers? obscure abreveiations. NO step 1,2,3. I didn't think I would turn out a world class hull today, but I did think SOME sort of tutorial would be included. OR somewhere on the net I could go.
    What I have now is the "Give a monkey a typewriter and a million years...." theory. Any advice? I just wanted a 28' scow hull for a canal type river boat. Plus the learning something new feeling. Gotta go, it's time for Bonzo to make some pretty shapes.
