to check that all the parameters are correct in your modelling, there are few checks you can do.
The first one is ensuring the hydrostatic results (under the Hydrodynamic system) : the diagonal elements of the hydrostatic stiffness matrix should be positive. You can also check that the displaced volume is positive and smaller than the equivalent volumetric displacement.
Secondly, you can check the cable properties (highlighted items) so we can single out that the issue is down the the cable properties rather than the model definition.
I hope this helps.
Kind regards, Ingrid
