    Does someone know where can I get wave resistance tables or sowtware for tanker forms?

    I believe it's possible to enter offsets manually. The demoversion of multisurf ( I think ) has an export option to michlet file format.

    Thanks for the endorsement for Michlet, but Michlet is designed for hulls where the longitudinal slope of the hull is small. It is not always suited to ships like cargo vessels which can have small length-to-beam ratios. It sometimes works remarkably well for those hulls, but I suspect it is a bit of a fluke.
