Re: Holes in the ground
M would - for SH3D purposes - only indicate the starting point of the cutout. In your path, and mine, it is the bow waterline. But, of course, you can start 'cutting' anywhere.

If M is followed by more than one pair of coordinates, L (lineto) is assumed for the next ones (or l if lowercase m is used). So you can skip the L in the second line of my path. But when editing manually, it is easier (for me) to put each path command on a separate line prefixed with the command. Normally, btw, I would also use L instead of H and V. That way the entire path can easily be imported in a spreadsheet with x and y values in their proper place if you need too play with the values.
