How do I calculate the CLR of my new Thames barge,I know it has to be within 10% of the waterline length behind the CofE of the sail plan I need this data to place the fin and ballast.

Hi Bellman
I found this on u-tube which may help
There are other posts on U-tube that also cover this topic.
For the benefit of our members who may not be so savvy on your CLR and sailing boats Wikipedia explains
Hope this helps but I hope some more knowledgeable member will post their own method of calculation.
Good luck and please post details of how you decide where you place your keel and balance.

Live long and prosper
