Hello Marven,
I did not understand what the cwl is.
I have a book “PRINCIPLE OF YATCH DESIGN” it says the midship section must be located at the middle of the LWL. My question is simply how can I do that in Delftship.

As I know delftship can locate midship section automatically at the middle of the LOA (Non LWL) or We can manually enter the coordinate of the midship section. But at this time we can not know the exact location of the middle of the LWL. If we know both the start and end point coordinate of LWL then we can easilly calculate the half of the distance. Is my question clear?
