    I am making a job on a 20 meter boat where I have an open hold for hold live fish. I need to model the hold / tank in AutoHydro as an open hold so the water will spill out whe the vessel is heeling. Does anyone know how I do this?

    Take a look at the 'TANKS' command in the Help menu. There are several status parameters that you can set - one of them is spilling. The level of the tank will stay parallel with the outside waterplane and at the reference point you set for the spilling point.
