Have you tried adding a (vertical) cylinder in a separate layer and intersecting this layer with the hull?

Hi Marven,
I did try to model the curved/inclinated transom by “add cylinder” tool.
In this particular case it looks like it’s allmost impossible due to the inclination to get the cylinder perfectly fitting the transom shape!? Indeed despite lots of hand adjusting of both cylinder and transom I cannot get closer than as shown on the attatched file.
At this stage, by intersecting layers, only a distorted transom will come out (obviousely transom edges are adjusted to the adjacent cylinder intersections).
Am I doing anything wrong?
or what would be the alternative to close an inclinated curved transom?
Thanks for any comments 🙂
