    So the data displayed as number – number- number in each of the columns represents the x – y – z coordinates of each frame.

    It looks as if I need to try and manually create this list of offsets from the spreadsheet. I am experiencing some problems with the spacing on the text file. How many spaces are required between columns to physically separate them as you read down.

    Sorry to keep pressing the subject with silly questions but I thought it would be a simple conversion by copying the data to a text file and importing it to the DELFTship program. So far it (DELFTship] refuses to recognize the text file as a table of offsets. I even attempted to modify an exported table of offsets with the data and import it and the results went terribly awry when the hull appeared on the screen with a definite boomerang shape to it which was not very boat-like at all.

    I am experiencing some problems with the importation of the data as a text file for the hull lines and offsets function.

    I have the information saved as the attached MS Word.doc file and my question is what am I looking at in this document?

    I can decypher some of the data but the groupings of numbers have me a bit stumped as to what values they are supposed to represent. Can anyone assist me with this problem. I am trying to create the Nasty/Tjeld class FPB hull and up till now my previous attempts have not been what I had expected.

    Is the data in the document that appears as numbers separated by a “-” supposed to represent Feet, Inches, and Fractions of an Inch? Or some other values? By trial and error I have found that the “+” must also be removed even though that represents a fraction of 1/16th of an inch. How do I address this measurement if the symbol is removed?

    I would really like to get this as close as possible to what the original designer had created.

    Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide,
