Yes Menno, it has worked.
Nice design and the boat is very typical I think.
Anyway the daggerboards or zwaard, they affect the hull’s hydrostatics: move them
upright for one meter and see the changes on the hydrostatics report.
Changed: displaced volume, block coefficient etc, and of course the metacentric height.
It doesn’t matter if a part is joined fisically to the model, it has to be a part of – a
layer for ex. – and of course have a displacement beyond the waterline.
Hope it will help you.
Bye, Jurgen.
