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.
