    thanks for the explanation on those corners, i understand now, in freeship open the bow and close it like a stern
    you can check devellopability as these ends best dont have to much twist. lewis knows after building six it was rite?
    as for the million other parts of the design i ssumed you were refering to resistance, stabilty, velocity etc
    construction and how the "corners" (or how do we call them?) can be any way you like i guess, good luck !

    ps. a florida roofer once told me nailing X wise was more hurricane proof and expensive ;-)

    As a builder for 35 years I can tell you that it would be luck if the architect had the door in the right place .

    sorry Apex ,looks like another hijack

    Gentlemen: enough said about protocols - this is a GREAT thread!

    Please, could somebody tell me how to use the "keel/rudder" function to put appendages on adeveloped hull?

    I suspect that it is a "layer" function, but I'm still toddling when it comes to uses that...

    Any help that the experts can provide will be geatly appreciated

    S/F, Phil

    I just wanted to make a sketch drawing of an add-on porch. I wanted to know how many 2X's etc I needed.
    I downloaded about four of those 'easy to do' programs.
    I wound up doing it with a pencil on a napkin at coffee one morning.

    Solid Edge have their 2D cad drawing for free. Unfortunately there isn't an easy to do program that is worth using you can just use and get what you want. It should be doable though. Some of the PCB programs are going that way. It's almost logic to use them, so the learning curve is maybe an hour. Who knows, maybe one day someone other than a melancholy engineeer would write software that works easy.

    Just look around for rudder and keel stuff.
