How to model the tip of a catamaran hull?

Hello,

I want to create the model of a catamaran hull but I struggle with the bow/nose.

The main part of the hull is defined by section profiles but the bow/nose is an edge (see attached pictures).

How can I model such a bow/nose.

Hi Klaus, there are some links here to some previous discussions on ship hull modeling techniques, maybe some info and examples in those discussions would help you:

One way that I think you'll see in some of those models is to have a 90 degree rotated profile at the bow so there is a transition area from regular stations to a 90 degree rotated station at the end.

Hi Klaus,
you can get a reasonable result by adding extra cross sections in the tip area
and loft all sections as shown in the attached photo.
If you want the file I will post it.
