Hi

and thanks for your ideas!

Yes I used the translate/move tools to get close to the hull, but because my hull is not flat at the point I had to moved the fin keel above in order to don t have part of the fin keel not attached to the hull.

I will try to add some points to the hull and see if they can match with the imported part.

I wonder also if i have to move everything to the baseline, or if I have to leave the canoe body at the baseline and the fin keel below;
because I get really different value in the resistance calculation if i move keel and hull above the baseline or not.

Is this normal? does DS recognized negative part of the hull in the resistance calculation, because it does in the hydrostatic…

thanks again
