    I am 12 years old and want to design and build my own boat. I already made the general arrangement plan and build sequence plan. Now I need assistance with making the necessary calculations of the design. Can anybody help?

    Can you post what you have up to now? Photos or scans of your drawings.

    Good luck with your project. You may find this thread interesting (and amusing). Little Idea is now 15 so only a bit older than you when he started designing and building

    Google "yacht design book" and you will see many options, depending on the boat you are drawing. There are also a number of websites and youtube videos that tell you how to do the basics.
