Hi Mike,

Thanks for the input.
So to recap, what you’re saying is that anything inside the hull, such as tanks, batteries, the cabin, the floor etc. doesn’t need the hydrostatic box ticked, just the symmetric one. That is provided the thickness and density are input.

As you can see I’m pretty much a layman as far as boat design is concerned, but I’m trying………

When I saw hydrostatic I assumed hydrostatic pressure exerted on the water by the boat. Since in reservoir engineering which was my forte, one calculated the hydrostatic pressure at the bottom of a wellbore with pipe and kill fluid in place.

Anyway, thank you kindly for the information and the patience.
