Hi Dida, Adriano et al,

I made each sail its own layer with ‘Symetric’ unchecked (second check box, to the right of ‘Visible’. The areas I obtained in design Hydrstatics seemed reasonable and with ‘Symetrics’ check they doubled.

I exported the Lines Plan as DXF file and used Turbo Cad to check the areas – they came out the same. I also drew the sail plan up by hand in the old fashioned way and the areas were the same.

The boat is now in build and the sail plan is with my sailmaker. It seems to work for me and I can’t really see anything else to suggest.

What sort of sail configuration are you planning? This current project has a Lugsail and Jib.

All the best
