Lofting

Nov. 16, 2016

The Class of 2017 is hard at work lofting the Herreshoff Sixteen.

Lofting teaches students how to lay down the lines of a boat and make developments from which they will make patterns to transfer to building stock. Learning lofting brings an appreciation of the lines of a hull with an understanding of its structure. The precise application of sound lofting principles is an essential skill. It is here that the real construction of a boat begins.
