I have a little question about Delftship – it is possible to enter value for draft, but is it also possible to specify the freeboard of the vessel?
I am trying to create a boat with draft of 40 cm and freeboard of 75 cm…
With best wishes,
I’m sorry for any possible mistakes, because english is not my first language…
Hi priit, your English was excellent.
To my knowledge No , all measuremants are from the base line so if your draft is set to 0.75, click on the control point on your freeboard add 0.4 + 0.75 = 1.15, enter 1.15 into the X coordinate in the Coordinate Box, press enter and you have your 0.4 freeboard if you make a mistake under Edit press Undo. Then do the rest of the control points along your sheer or freeboard, also look at the Project Selected Points on a Straight Line command. You can make the stem contol point one height and the port stern control point another height and the Project Selected Points command with give you a straight line between the stem and stern.
Thank you very much for your advice!
