    I designed the hull form of a sailing yatch. Now i want to do some basic sea keeping calculation. I want to find its responses to different headings at various speeds. Could anyone kindly help me in how to go about doing the calculations?

    Such a basic request from someone who shows "Naval Architect" below their name. My recommendation is to ask for your money back from those that provided you the knowledge to use the title Naval Architect.

    Google VPP or Velocity Prediction Program and Polar Plot.

    Then do your homework like everyone else.

    what do you mean by 'sea keeping'?
    Are you trying predict the behaviour of the boat at different angles with different waves characteristics and boat speed? (so pitching, rolling resonances, etc), or are you just trying to predict speed?
