    Ok, I won't try to beat around the bush anymore. This is the table of offsets. I thing I see what it means, and yes I know how to read the numbers. I just don't understand the names. If you guys can't see the attachment let me know. I am doing this from my ipad.

    Simply put, sheer plan means side view and half breadth plan means top view of half hull.

    Guys, I just noticed that there wasn't any height that was clearly marked. I am not sure if there is another word for height but in short, with the picture I posted of the offsets, can you help me find the height. Thanks.

    Height would be at any station from gunwale to keel and that will vary from stem to stern.
    Freeboard would be the distance from the gunwale to the water.

    I will try to post a pic of the description that has the stations but there are only a couple. Tommorow I hope to see if you can make sense of it. But again, thanks for putting up with me and answering all my questions.

    Here I will just repost the pic of the offsets because I have no idea where it will be. Again, it does mention station but only a couple of em.

    Thanks. I found it finally. It was a little hard to read.

    Np, ya I know, 1 because it printed small and 2 because I took a picture with my Ipad (not the greatest quality if you haven't owned on yet).

    Cool, just how do you know the height of each rib? And again, how do you take the boat out of the mold once the hull is completed?
