    Hi there!
    I am facing a problem while trying to perform upright hydrostatics and equilibrium on my catamaran. The error message reads "Trim value exceeds -45...", But i get hydrostatics values of same model in maxsurf modeler.

    Am I overlooking something?

    check your LCG location at the loadcase that you use for equilibrium analysis. I suppose it is at its default value (zero) causing your error.

    As "vkstratis" mentioned, most likely the LCG value in the loadcase is the reason for the error. Please check if correcting that value solves the issue.
