Recognizing the need for a simple, inexpensive, and sufficiently accurate method for initial seakeeping estimates, as well as the interest of developing in house know-how in solving the seakeeping problem, the main purpose of this work is to present a computational tool for computing the hydrodynamic coefficients trough conformal mapping using two parameters. The validation of the tool is done applying it to naval ship sections in order to find rough estimates of the hydrodynamic coefficients for the six degrees of freedom, with the coupled and uncoupled terms
