“Intrepid”, a Poco Barta build

Recommended Posts


Some times easier isn't the point.  If trying to save plywood, then pre-lofting on paper allows for an efficient jig saw puzzle of a cutting layout. Occasionally, a tiny piece fits inside a large frame.

I have never offered this one in full size plans and it is a good paddling boat too. I would like to have one but i have way too many boats now.

It would, but then I wouldn’t learn how to loft frames from offsets. There will be a significant amount of satisfaction gained from turning a handful of charts with numbers on them into a living, breathing craft.

Also, it is easier to loft directly on plywood. It saves having to cut out posterboard and trace onto plywood.
