    Dear Forum,

    Can anybody help me with finding the waterline. I have the "wet weight" with people and I have the AutoCad drawing.

    I am getting to the last veneers on my 33 ft Mahogany boat and I am going to finish the bottom paint and side bright work before I flip her.

    I have a good idea based on the how much a cubic foot displaces water and its weight but would like confirmation.

    I have it in AutoCad but don't know how to calculate volumes in Cad.


    Thanks
    Ray
