    Hi there,

    I have just discovered michlet, freeship and delftship and I'm having a blast. I've designed boats using graph paper and large crosscut saw blades in the past, and am really excited to try computation design.

    I just ran an optimization of a below waterline on godzilla, but am trying to add above waterline sections. [SO MUCH FUN!!!] Any help? links? tips? I have read the manual(s), but may have inadvertently missed it or it is currently beyond my level of understanding. ....

    Any help would be appreciated. [Thanks in advance for your patience...]

    As a temporary solution, if you are able to define the hull from the baseline to the waterline, why do not you place the waterline a little higher?
