      Hi, Can anyone help?

      Is there any way that Delftship can tell you the surface area of the entire hull, including the topsides?

      The wetted surface area is included in the hydrostatic calcs, that part is pretty easy- but I’m trying to calculate the theoretical weight of the finished hull structure excluding keel and ballast- having built a test panel I know the weight of the chosen construction material per square metre- so the next thing is logically to know how many square metres there are!

      Thanks in advance,

      Simon.

      Check the design hydrostatics report. The area of each layer is displayed there.
