hey there,
i think i am understanding you correctly. there is a function under file>export> stations. if you do this it will send each station offset to a .txt file. it can be a little confusing at first but once you figure out what the numbers are it is very easy to see whats what. the reason it can be confusing is the numbers do not always start in the center of the boat.

there are two rows of numbers the one on the left is your Y axis and on the right is your Z axis. next to those number it will tell you if the point is a knuckle line. thats the easiest way i can think of to find the measurement of a knuckle line at a given station.

using the add station function you can probably find a measurement at any given point along the boat. just create a station at that point. here is a sample .txt file of what you should get from the export stations file
