Leaving things to implication is risky. People do misunderstand, 
unfortunately. Fault in such cases varies :-) If what you actually want 
is gbr and hct parameters for Martini atom types, everyone can use their 
time better if you ask specifically about that.

That manual section mentions the reference sources for these parameters, 
which is why I referred to it. Whether there's any established procedure 
for implicit solvation with Martini is probably a question for 
literature search and speaking with the Martini developers.
