Ever thought about building your own small boat, but just looking at the plans scared you off.  Did you say to yourself, “Okay, there’s a picture of a boat, I get that part but what is this picture of a plate full of spaghetti doing in here as well?”

Learn what all those lines and numbers mean as we cover the basics of understanding all the elements of a set of plans with an introduction to lofting.  Lofting is taking scale plans and creating a full-size drawing.


Hosted by the Vancouver Wooden Boat Society
