Summary

Lofting--enlarging a boat's plans to full size--is an essential step in the process of building a boat. It is also a step that confounds many boatbuilders, amateurs and professionals alike. In this volume, veteran boatbuilder Allan Vaitses provides a clear explanation of the process. This shop manual is the only available text completely devoted to the subject. Book jacket.
