In Remembrance of George S. Hazen, 1951-2020
With the passing of George Hazen on December 23, 2020, Orca3D, LLC lost a founding member, good friend, mentor, and brilliant mind. The maritime industry has lost a pioneer, a naval architect who was as comfortable working on theory as on application. Most importantly, his family has lost a loving and dedicated son, brother, husband, father, and grandfather. Our heartfelt condolences go out to all of them.
The tools are there to help build the hull shape you want quickly and easily. That hull can be as simple as you like, or as complex as necessary and the final geometry will not only look nice on the screen but can be readily analyzed to assure that it is both 'fair' and 'buildable'.
Alan Johnston, J/Boats, Inc.
I have been using Orca3D for several years for hydrostatics, hull model fairing and analysis, as well as for stability & flotation study for new J/Boat projects. It is a great companion tool for yacht design and the folks at Orca3D are always very helpful.
