RE: [bolger] Re: Anyone work with "Hulls" program?
Frank and Mark, not sure why I’m suddenly being copied on your private emails. Please delete!
Hulls, by itself, won't let you move weights around. It just levels out the boat. Once you have a model from it though, use Peter's BoatCalc to nicely analyze that further, including that it purports to let you "set weights" by station.
Get your Java up!
Another possibility is Hullforms.
BTW The Hulls package includes SneakV.hul, a version similar to John Bell's.
Have some pleasant, long winter evenings...

I've been reading some about this program (http://www.carlsondesign.com/#Fun_Shareware, scroll down to find link). So it should give me center of bouyancy among other things. If I modified a Sneakeasy to take an inboard similar to the photo in my album, would the "Hulls" program tell me where the new CB would be? I'm thinking I would need to put a stock Sneakeasy hull in, then drop the motor where I would want it.
