Duck Trap Woodworking

For the uninitiated, loftings are the lines of the boat drawn full size. Lofting is an integral part of the boatbuilding process in that it not only proves that the plans are accurate, but furnishes you with actual size depictions various parts of the hull, notably the backbone members of stem keel, and transom. It also contains the body plan from which the moulds will be made.


Lofting takes time, of course, a commodity that seems to be becoming increasingly scarce. If your time is limited or you just don’t want to be bothered with building a lofting board and working up the lines of your boat up to full size, then an already completed lofting makes good sense. We use them ourselves.


This page includes other things as well that are also drawn full size–Lap Clamp plans and Oarmaking plans for example. All of them are black line prints on 36” wide 24# white paper. Most are on a single sheet.
