Lofting

So all this work so far and we haven’t done a single bit of boat building…. Fortunately now that the shed is done it’s time to start lofting! Lofting is basically the process of taking a bunch of measurements from our plans and transferring them onto a full scale grid to draw the lines of the boat in real size. A few things are required for lofting, but most important is a large flat level floor a few feet longer than the length of your boat, and a few feet wider than the height from keel to sheer. Since we didn’t happen to have a 16×40 flat surface laying around I wen’t about building it
