    I was wondering if there is a (empirical) formula to estimate the resistance curve for other drafts based on a known curve for a certain draft? I don't think you have this for a complicated hull form, but surely someone has ever investigate this for a 'standard' hull form?

    Except that suggested from jehardiman.....

    Try in FreeShip software to take the hull form you like from the examples files and to increase by step the drafts .
    then you calculate for each of them the resistance and you take an Idea about that you asked.
