Dirty Little Secrets of Hull Design by Computer

"All of the hull design programs use open surface design geometry. None of the programs use solid modeling, which requires a complete, closed solid geometry at all times. Solid modeling has some advantages when it comes to calculations, but it makes the process of modeling the geometry much more difficult. This means that the boat design software has to do a lot of work to calculate the hydrostatics and stability of a vessel."
