    The cheap version of Maxsurf only allows you to work with a limited number of surfaces. The higher version, which is much more expensive, has no surface limitation. That is the commercial policy (which to me seems wrong). You have, then, only two possible solutions:
    - acquire the professional version.
    - Make the model of your boat with less than 20 surfaces.
    I have to say that, in my opinion, with 20 surfaces can be made very, very complicated hulls. Try to simplify things and keep in mind that for the calculations of naval architecture you only need a model up to the main deck.
