      How do you connect the keel with the hull?

      Hi!
      I am still in the experimental phase reading the manual. I started this way:

      1. I created a new layer “Keel” and put it as active one.
      2. All control points which should be in touch with the keel, stem and stern post I moved transversally for a half width of the keel.
      3. Then I selected edges and extruded them down for the height of the keel.
      4. So I got the lower edge of the keel.
      5. Then I selected lower edge of the keel and extruded it toward center line for the half width of the keel, and got it at the center line.

      Also I got some new leak points under the water and this is bad.

      6. Select some other colour for the keel to see the difference between the hull.

      Now, I am trying to eliminate leak points.
      I hope this helped to you. Let me, please, know.

      Kind regards,

      Not like this.
      If you add a keel with”keel and rudder wizard” how do you connect the keel with the hull?

      I did not try this method. Do you know how to make one point of two, with the same coordinates?

      I attached the picture of the boat I am working on. The keel is different from those found at yachts.
