    Floating and Buoyancy???

      I'm working on a floating dock. A rotomolded part that will be filled with foam. I'm wondering if there is a way to determine the best placement of the keel? Can Cosmos help with this?

          Are you designing a floating dock for smaller boats?
          If so; is this dock equipped with a keel, and is it the position of this keel you are considering? or is it to determine the best position of the keel of the boat this floating dock is intended for?

          I would probably have used the material properties for the foam, throughout ALL the dock / design, and neglected the additional strength ("bonus") the plastic surface will give.

          Sorry for not being able to help...
