A boat design free software looking for users

I have developped a software that support the classical approach to boat design. By classical I mean an approach similar to the design process presented in Principles of Yacht Design advertised on this site. I have used the software to design my boat which is under construction.
The software run under Windows and all the design is graphically driven.
The functions are:
* Boat parameters definition
* Main lines drawing
* Stations drawing
* Large scale sections viewing
* Static hull data analysis
* Hydrostatic hull data analysis
* Ratio
* Stability curve analysis
* Boat lines analysis
* Resistance forces graph analysis
* Sail Plan generation
* Sail Plan analysis
* Polar plot
* VPP Velocity Prediction Program
* Frame spacing specification
* Frames and components viewing
* Frames offsets generation
* Standard mass automated generation
* Hull mass and CG automated calculation
* Detailled plans
* Boat Data on-line viewing
* Boat data permanent copy
I have no web site to store the software.
Any interest or suggestions?
It is free and well documented.
