French term or phrase: données pantocarènes
In a document about the stability of fishing vessels:
"Données pantocarènes.
Ces données, qui permettent de tracer la courbe des bras de levier de redressement GZ pour tout cas de chargement, sont présentées soit sous forme graphique (courbes), soit sous forme de tableaux à des déplacements et gîtes suffisamment rapprochés."

It's something to do with hull data, but the "panto" has me foxed. Complete/full hull data?
