Express Wherry Lofting
Time is a precious commodity for all of us. And even those who are quite capable of executing their own lofting from our plans have to decide where they want to spend their time. If you rather spend time in the actual construction of your Express Wherry, then it's a no-brainer. Availing yourself of the completed lofting in handy roll format will appreciably shorten the time between that first saw cut and launching day.
The lofting itself is a black line copy that resists fading in the sunlight, and the paper is durable enough to withstand repeated rolling and unrolling. In fact, if you take a close look at the photo you will see how we utilized the lofting to lay out the pieces of her transom. We did the same with her laminated stem–just overlay the lofting with a sheet of 6mil polyethylene. It's bad form to epoxy your stem to the lofting (not to mention harsh treatment for the lofting).
