    So I scanned through the old posts and I do mean OLD posts regarding Mac's and boat design software. Pretty dismal. But then I discovered 3D Boat Design which is a pretty inexpensive software that looks like I might be able to learn it before I turn 60. But I have a Mac. Then there was an FAQ regarding some folks successfully using this on a Mac using Wine.

    Are any of you folks out there? I'd like to give it a try but I'm not sure I'm savvy enough to venture into this world of not only CAD but trying to run it using Wine.

    I know about the Parallels and Windows compatibility that is usually mentioned but had not heard about doing it with something like Wine.

    Hope you can help. Thanks.

    Thanks for the heads up! Not something I want to be a part of. But as to Part 2 of my query. Can Free Ship be used on a Mac via Wine?
