    hello. I was wondering if there is any way to design a pram or garvey in free ship. as far as I can figure out I can only make regular hull types.

    Yes there is and its a good deal easier with a chined hull form than with a more rounded type.You need to make use of the "crease" function and to extrude a raking bow transom so that the edges line up with the sides.I'm not sufficiently adept with Freeship to post examples but I have modelled a crude houseboat hull.

    I had a quick play and did this.So it can be done,but don't even think of building from this rough and ready effort.
