    It is just the area (and its centroid location) of the vessel above the load waterline..that's it..no fancy magic. Takes about 5mins by hand to calculate.

    There is no program that you say....please give me a design....there is still a lot of manual checking and calculating to do. A pretty picture in maxsurf/rhino etc...wont give you all you want. Roll your sleeves up and get your hands dirty....it's called designing!! :)
