Hi Leo,


I did as you suggested and widened the length variables from the design 6.4 to a min 5.0 and max 10.0. I also changed a single speed to 5 design speeds. And the program sprung into action.

I stopped it after 2 million evaluations. Will it eventually stop by itself?

The changes made during the evaluation were to: length, beam, wetted surface area, LCB and LCF. These were all reduced. It gave me a best fitness of 10.5498, is this good?
So is this the optimised hull design?

I ran the Pressure, Resistance and Wave options after the evaluation and I will endeavour to compare the before and after traces – still to do!

At this moment in time I’m one happy bunny………!

Many thanks.
