DELFTship(Freeship): Visual 3D hull modelling and stability analysis perfectly suited for students, home users or anyone else with an interest in ship design.The model database contains a large number of free downloadable DELFTship™ models submitted by various users. These are a good starting point to see how things are done, or can be used as the basis for a new design of your own.
Designed from the ground up using state-of-the-art technologies, DELFTship allows you to derive all data needed for calculations from the model itself. This guarantees data consistency between all elements and extensions.Work smarter, faster and with user-driven software built on years of product development in real-life environments - all based on TU Delft research.

I haven't found anything that has not worked. It's fun to play with
What does not
What was not tested
I've gotten thruabout 50% of the program but so far so good
Possible problem with some distro/wine combination - found was that the downloaded "exe" installer would hang up at "moving files"; see below for workaround.
Set Winecfg default to Windows 7 The exe installer is affected by bug 34989 / 33345, and the workaround mentioned in that bug report works for DELFTship. Run the downloaded exe with the following command to extract the files within it: wine /path/to/version_of_delftship.exe /extract Example: dave@dave-GB-BXBT-1900 ~ $ wine /home/dave/Downloads/DELFTship_90_300_mc0_sa.exe /extract This will create a subdirectory with the extracted files in the directory where the exe is located. The name of the subdirectory will be some combination of letters and numbers. Example: /home/dave/Downloads/323610A Within the directory are two files, Delftship.msi and DelftShip.x64.msi one is 32 bit and one 64 bit. take your pick, both worked fine on my version of wine 2.0. Once you click on the version you want it will install DelftShip and ask you if you want to run the program. That's all folks ;-0
