    Default From Design To Completed Skiff First Quarter Scale Model

    Lofting from the spreadsheet printout.

    I will not show cutting out the panels, so on to stitching

    First sides stitched

    and glued with the transom installed

    I was surprised how well the transom laid out from the plates and matched the cardboard model parameters.

    I don't like the bow lines. I want a more graceful sweep from the bow, and this model has a what I would call a hooked nose where the bottom panels meet the side panels at the bow. In addition the overall length is too long for a 6 hp. I need for this boat to get on a plane and stay on if I run at 3/4 throttle. So it is back to FS to adjust the Z coordinates on the first third of the hull.

    Freeship will allow you to tweak to your hearts content.
    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.
