SeaHorse Hulls is a parametric modeling plugin for catamaran hulls. The demo version exposes only a few parameters, limiting the family of possible shapes. The plugin exposes a single comand - shHulls. The default values produce a hull with a Cp around 0.64. SeaHorse Hulls demo is free to use, however consider donating to support further development of the free version.
