    Does anybody have any experience with Wolfon Institute's Hullscant program for determining ISO 12215 scantlings?

    Thanks Alik,
    I decided to go ahead and order it...
    Reluctantly jumping on the (expensive!) ISO bandwagon... and I hate writing spreadsheets!!!

    I have been using HullScant for almost 2 years now and echo Alik's response. Relatively easy to use. I added the rudder module as soon as it was released and am looking forward to the keel module which will probably be released near the end of the year.

    I am not sure if all the classification societies are using it, but RYA and IMCI do so it makes it easier to work with them.

    Thanks Foxy.
    The program arrived yesterday... very easy to use so far.
