While click on Check model icon, a window appears saying:
The model contains a total of 5 leak points:
The leak points coordinates bellow the above statement

How can I eliminate those leak points?

In the 'Hull Display' menu (Home tab) there is a button 'Leak Points'. Click this to only show leak points (control net must be on)
A leak point is usually either on a border (like a deck line) or it is a point where there is a bad irregularity. One of the more common reasons for confusion is that two points are at exactly the same spot- it seems closed but isn't. If a leak point doesn't seem leak, move it a little bit, to see if there is another point behind it. If that is the case close the hole that now should be evident.
Lastly it can happen that part of a hydrostatic hull was moved to a non-hydrostatic hull, causing leaks.

Hi Maarten

Thank you for the answer :)
All the leak point are on the deck line and it is an open deck boat.
Can I ignore them in your opinion?

As long s they do not submerge you should be fine. It very much depends on what extensions / calculations you apply.

Thank you again Maarten

You made me relax as the minimum height is 495 mm and the maximum load water line is 250 mm, that also in extreme situations. Normal load LWL is at 200 mm.

In case of dubt, you can draw a tarpaulin to close any openning in your model.

Sometimes I do it when I'm fed up with alighting with this leaking alert, it clears my mind. The only leak points I'm interested in are definitely not the ones along the open deck.
