      As a newcomer, please let me know if this post is inappropriate and I’ll repost/reword as necessary to conform to Forum rules.

      I have the design for a 30 foot sailboat partly finished in Freeship but am running repeated frustrations. I’m looking for someone experienced in Freeship for remote, online tutoring to solve problems such as how many points are needed in a mesh or control line to determine a hull curve without overdeterming it causing unnecessary complexity, how to design a hollow flaring bow section and fair it into low deadrise sections, how to design a rudder/keel and loft them to the hull and have the hydrostatics include them, how to make sense of the hydrostatics data and relate them to real world functionality, how to find and fix leak points.

      The hull is attached, and though it’s very unorthodox, is still at a crude stage of development.

      It’s feasible to set up a project with someone in nearly any world timezone – we could use a free download such as Mikogo to set up a remote control console session, use Yahoo messenger for simultaneous phone conferencing, and I could pay you through PayPal.

      Please contact me for further details through this forum or at wboud@shore.net. Thank you.

      Do you have a drawing or picture of how do you want it to look like finished?, maybe I can help you, but i would like to see the final result expect it.

      Regards

      Hello,
      The .fbm file of my first draft of the hull is attached in the above posting (laurieta_rose.fbm). It needs alot of work – for starters, length increased to around 30′ – then for reasons of trailerability, beam narowed to around 11′ and freeboard lowered to allow for cabin top that fits under air draft road restriction of 13′ 6″.

      Were you able to open the .fbm file I posted?

      Yes but again what I need is the final draft of what you want to accomplish so I can lead you step by step to it, otherwise I´m afraid I can´t help you.

      Best regards

      Cruzmayora,
      Thanks for you quick reply. My “final draft” of what I want to accomplish is a hull that encompasses the physical design criteria and aesthetics I have in mind, packaged within a height/beam/weight configuration that is legally trailer-able on state roads, and develop-able with plywood. The hull shape I posted earlier is a working draft model which I need to modify to length 30′, beam 11′, total air draft of 13′ from cabin top to keel bottom. That makes the hull considerably narrower than in the current draft, so I’m trying to retain as much of the stout character and large beam-to-length ratio as possible yet still conforming to the above criteria. It will be an iterative approach, progressively narrowing in on the most appealing hull form that meets the physical and aesthetic constraints. I could go on more about the reasons for choosing the rather unorthodox curves I’ve put into the draft hull, but that’s probably a longer discussion better suited to phone than email.
      What I was hoping to do by posting here is find someone like yourself who would be willing to work on an hourly basis, is adept with FreeShip, with whom I could set up a remote console session, so you could take remote control of my console and work the design in real time while we’re on phone conference and show me around the finer points and most efficient workflows and technical obstacles I’ve encountered in FreeShip.
      I have a pretty clear vision of what I want this hull to look like and under which conditions I want certain performance criteria, but I need the expert facilities of a FreeShip user to bring the draft to a final hull form stage.
      If I’m missing your question, perhaps we could have a quick phone conference where I could explain qualitatively some of the design criteria I’ve set up.

      Will
