      How can I easily make a Keel so that v2.6 does not make a mirror image of it?

      I have been selecting points and creating a new face (z=0) to make the keel.

      Regards, Dave

      Just un mark the symetrical tag in the Layers window, that would erase the morror image of the longitudinal keel

      Hope this helps

      I saw that dialog box in v4. I opened my file in the new freeSHIP and opened that up and all the boxes under symmetrical were already un-marked. It didn’t make any sense to me, but I just figured it was an incompatibility between v2 and v4. I couldn’t find anything similar in v2 either. After reading you note I tried again, just in case I over looked something obvious.

      The pic is what I see when I open the layer properties in v4.

      I was poking around a bit more and I discovered if I un-marked the box called “hydro-statics” the symmetrical box automatically became checked. So I could do this and then (I think) take the file back into V2. Maybe I should ask first though…

      What am I giving up by un-marking the box “hydro-statics”? Anything important in a simple skiff development? Chances are I can live with out hydro-statics, but I would love to know for sure. Cheers
