    Tell me please a question about the Maxsurf VPP.
    When the model is opened, the correct definition of AGS and FGS does not occur. Is it possible to set the location of these quantities manually?

    In my suspicion, the program exposes these values depending on the location of the center of gravity and the center of the sail. But that's all for supposition.

    Thank you in advance.

    I find the definition of the FGS, but it doesn't look clear enough.

    Hopeful it helps u.

    FGS: Forward Girth Station; located where the centerline of the hull forward intersects a plane 0.66 inches above the measurement waterline.
