Connection Keel to Hull,
1 create keel, make it a slightly deeper draft then necessary.
2 move keel to required location with the keel protruding through the hull.
3 go to Edit –> Point –> Intersect layers…. a box will appear, there are 2 lines one above the other, hull in one and keel in the other, cant remember where each one goes (trial and error)
4 An intersection line will appear between the keel and hull. The line should be on the keel surface, it will turn red or make it red, and delete everything above the red intersection line, and there you have it. You can permanently join them to gether but dont as you will change your keel several times during the design cycle.
