How cut solid by a surface?

Hi,
I want to limit one solid (one extruded simple solid) by a surface. This surface is a boat hull, and it is a complicated surface. I want to design one tank limited by the hull, so if I could put one solid and then remove the with the hull surface then I would have the tank tailored to the
hull.
Any suggestions?

Hi Jimwxyz,
You can use "Combine" or "Trim" to get the required shape if you create the solid as surface. Depending on whether the tank is part of the hull or not you may have to use "Copy Geometry" or "Offset" from hull surface.
