    Hello everyone, I'm having a real problem creating a keel surface. I have the two sides ready but when selecting my curves for the keel edges and creating a skin curve I can't seem to get a flat surface.

    What is the best practice here for creating a keel here? I was going to bond it later to the hull sides and let them dictact the final shape but just want a flat keel to work with.

    Volume3k try “extrude surface”, select edge of the surface then at the prompt in the transverse box put in a negative number to go towards the centre.
