As a designer you should always know the weight of your boat. In an early stage you can estimate the weightby looking at similar boats. Later on in the design process you should have enough information to calculate the weight. This means you”ll need to knwo the weight of every part or piece of equipment on board your vessel.
The weight of the construction is calculated by first calculating the required thickness of the structural elements. Then calculate the volume (area * thickness) and multiply this with the relative density of your material. Once this is done for all structural parts you should have the weight of the vessel.
Once you know the weight you can calculate the exact draught, and with it the L_{wl} and B_{wl}
