    Default Royal Australian Navy lofting manual

    Apprentice training. With a few pointers, tricks, and kinks not found elsewhere:

    You're welcome. I'm trying to wrap my head around expansion of side panels, pp. 40-46. The flat bottom skiff with straight sides that I want to build should be simpler than the examples in the book.

    Looks good. For another perspective, get through our host "Lofting" by Alan Viatses. I've not read the Australian book but I've wandered about in confusion through several different books before I found Viatses and got the points. He actually makes how to loft a raked and curved transom intelligible.
