      Romp is a strip planked boat. Regardless, yes Freeship does a good
      job of calculating expanded panels. As to working from the table of
      offsets, conventionally, you would loft the table of offsets to
      establish the frames and the lines. This lofting smooths out the
      errors in the table of offsets (Then you do the spiling to figure the
      expanded shapes of the strakes.) Freeship does the smoothing of
      errors and if you know the sheerline and keel shape and a midship
      section (or two or three) you do not need to worry about all the
      offsets. Freeship also expands the shapes of the strakes.
