Lofting the panel templates

Started work on the new dinghy. Carefully drawing out the offsets for the side and bottom panels. Very satisfying work, making a series of points and then drawing a smooth curve through them with a wooden batten. The stern transom seems fractionally small, but that will be easy to allow for when I cut it from the final marine ply. Otherwise all looks good so far. The next stage will be to cut out the templates accurately, so that half the line is left...
Down to Bristol tomorrow to pick up the marine ply from Robbins Timber. I have fixed extension bars to my roof rack to be sure I can bring it back safely.
