    Sorry Jaydee, my computer won’t read your file. I’m old school – I still design with paper and pencil ;) But the starting point of any design is to compare it with what else is out there.

    Beach cats? Look at the Hobies, Prindles (sorry, don’t know any more – but you do!)

    What are you trying to achieve? All designs are variations on a theme. How does yours differ, is it within the design parameters of the others in the beach cat class? Why would I buy yours instead of the others…?

    Define what makes your boat unique then just GO DO IT!!

    When I open the file in my 3D viewer I get duplicated boats. Not sure if it is your file or my viewer.

    Shape looks good.

    re

    yes there is 2 boats in the file, I tend to copy the boat when i am about to make some changes rather than saving it as a seperate file because if the changes don't look nice i can go back to the other boat and carry on from where i was before

    thanks

    The CAD programs I have used have an undo function with slectable undo memory. So no need to keep two copies. Just go back to where I was happy. Is better than getting confused and working on the wrong object.
