GHS FAQ

Question QA066 :
I have defined a shape using LOCUS statements and added it to the hull with the Fit Hull statement. We seem to have a bad station and the shape will not fit right.


Answer :
The shape not fitting is due to the bottom not having a definite overlap. It is good practice to avoid lines which are coincident between the component being fitted and the component being fitted to. In this case the bottom of WBT6.S and HULL.C both have horizontal line segments at 0.0 above the baseline. If you change the 0.0 on WBT6.S to slightly negative it avoids this problem.
