    I'm looking to calculate the volume of a keel bulb rotated around a 00 series foil shape with 15% chord. Anyone know where I can find the surface area of various foil shapes?

    I think you want to find the Cp of the foil section you plan to use. If memory serves, the 0010 section has a Cp of .604 (?). Once you have that you can calculate the volume.

    I'm not sure why you want to use a 00xx section for a bulb though. There are better foils to use for that purpose.
