Hi Mike,

Do you know whether the Professional version will do this automatically? It would great if the user could say:

– Based on my hull’s hydros without a fin, having these resistance values at these speeds and drafts, show me:

— 2, 3, or 4 realistic/acceptable, fin sizes, angles and positions/lengths/chords

— 3 or 4 optimal, and 3 or 4 ideal or better than ideal sizes, angles, and positions/lengths/chords

and such to either improve stability:

— at any or at all speeds

— at this narrow range of speeds

— outside (below and above) this speed band/range

— Or, for active fins, at zero speed

— and prioritize either stability at various speeds, or speed regardless of stability,

— and then plot or animate it

— show me the human factors limits as impacted by accelerations/motion/moments (assume the user is more interested in affects/effects upon humans and has no knowledge of equipment limitations….)

Yes, realize this is a lot to ask…. hehehehe
