Boat building is very fun if you take it one step at a time. Beginning with small steps is crucial for your enthusiasm to last forever. I personaly think that a Stitch and Glue Kayak Plans is a great way to start building boats and start learning all there is to learn about boat building.

Doug spent a couple of days writing a comp prog to convert boat offsets into flat, ‘unfolded’ representations of the original data. That program generated the data from which I produced the representations you see here(.dxf, .geo) , the ‘unfolded’ dimentions(text, postscript), also. The actual lines of the boat took far longer to design than the program. The actual lines of the boat took far longer to design than the program. Clearly, the figures are created by transforming the 3d offsets of the boat into triangles that ‘grow’ outward from the first. Then perpendiculars are drawn from a (derived) baseline at intervals and where they cross the ‘unfolded’ figure, are measured. These ‘.gif’ images are much too lowres for anything but examples (I also cannot guarantee they are correctly proportioned).
