This instructional video explains lofting, creating a lines drawing and developing geometry for traditional wooden boats.
"This guy really spent some time on this, he explains very thoroughly how to develop the geometry for setting up to build a carvel plank boat. It's very high quality too, it doesn't get grainy or degrade when you make it full size on a big screen. I must say, this video is the most comprehensive explanation of lofting and developing boat geometry that I have ever seen. I have almost every boat building book there is and it's hard to understand lofting in a book. This is not a video that you watch once and then it just sits on a shelf. This video is going to keep me learning for a long time because there's so much information in it. This video is worth a lot more than 30 dollars. Five stars for this video."
