You should only enter the points of the chine from the stern to the bow until the chine meets another curve. so in your case the point where the keel meets the bow (at 2.750 0.000 0.432) should be the end point of the curve.
This results in 6 points for the keel and chine curves and 8 points for the deck line. When the curves are imported the software will automatically ensure that the number of points on each imported curve is equal to the other curves. To avoid loss of accuracy I’d suggest the make this number equal to the number of points on the curve with the largest number. In your case that would be 8.

The resulting file should look like this:
