Wow. I didn’t know that Corel Draw would draw offset lines for this kind of need.

Unfortunately, last night i found that thickening the transverse bhds in DELFTship would add or reduce the displacement of my hull on the order of 2,300 tons. So, my ~9,000t hull dropped to some 6,000 when i added just two tvbhds near amidships, with the contour lines(?) facing forward (left on my screen) and increased it to over 11,000 t when the lines direction was faced to aft (right, on my screen). But, extruding a boundary line inboard or fore/aft seemed to not impact the displacement.

So, it seems users of Free! will definitely need Pro, and the tank modules. Not that Free would make comparable nor suitable tanks like Pro, but i guess i will give up on extruding boundary lines anywhere near or below the waterline, and i’ll have to keep thickening my tvbhds in ViaCAD Pro, and get my weight estimates there.
