Additional Info

 

Lofting is the process of drawing lines of a boat full-size, to get the shapes and patterns needed for building. You take the numbers from the table of offsets, plot them on the floor, and then play connect-the-dots. Okay, it's not that simple. If it were, you wouldn't need the book.
