Sorry for digging out this old thread, but I have difficulties with the input of lightship weight and cog.

I have a lightship weight estimate from a statistical method for a container vessel and want to enter it into the weight table at the bottom of the loadcase window but DelftShip won’t let me do that. I read the manual carefully and searched for relevant topics on this forum but had no success.

No problems with other masses or tank fillings though.

There must be something fundamentally wrong with what I do. I have attached a screenshot from DelftShip of where I tried to input my numbers.

Thanks a lot in advance for any hints on this subject!
