Lofted de bottom.
Today I whipped out the bottom of the boat, in pencil. Since I've already lofted the side, it went much quicker as there wasn't the trial and error period. The batten left a beautiful curve across the plywood, and I could see definitely, that this here was about to become, a boat. Pretty stoked, I am, as you can imagine. The only difference with the bottom is that measurements are given from the centerline. Storer has depicted the bottom of the boat lofted to one side of the plywood in order to save some wood, but I went for simple measurements and centerlined it right down the middle of the ply. Very satisfying results, all around.
