In Episode 3, Lou is getting into the math and measurements that will determine the shape and size of the TotalBoat Sport Dory. By using and transferring measurements from the table of offsets that he created, he is able to loft the dory at full size right on his temporary table, so he won’t have to crawl around on the floor.
Lou takes a fairly involved and complicated process and explains it so that it’s much easier to understand and undertake, should you be building your own boat or Dory alongside Lou. By transposing the dory widths and heights from his table of offsets to his full sized working drawings, Lou is making his next tasks of building the stations much easier. Follow along with Lou and his math and explanations so you can use this information on your own boat building projects. And as usual, post your questions and comments for Lou below, and he will answer them in a full episode of Q&A where you’ll get your answers and much more!
