      Recent changes to Windows and some NVIDIA drivers caused many Michlet
      graphic features to be painfully slow. Version 9.33 fixes these
      problems for now. (But don’t be surprised if Windows changes again!)
      Michlet can be downloaded from:
      http://www.cyberiad.net/michlet.htm

      Delftship can be used to create Michlet files. The hull offset table
      can also be used by other free programs such as Flotilla and the Free
      Internet Rowing Model (FIRM).

      Flotilla is available at:
      http://www.cyberiad.net/flotilla/flotilla.htm
      FIRM is at:
      http://www.cyberiad.net/firm/firm.htm

      When designing rowing shells or other very thin and/or slender hulls
      it is often advisable to work with a much wider representation because
      Delftship only outputs 3 decimal places. I recommend using a hull that
      is 10 times longer, 20 times wider and 10 times deeper to get enough
      precision. Once the offset table is produced, FIRM or the other
      programs can automatically scale it to the appropriate size.
