Page 6 Modeling a Sailboat: Hull shape

NOTE: Building the hull is the hardest part of building a boat or ship. You've been working since the beginning of this tutorial preparing for this Loft operation - now here's the big "payoff!"

Select all the section curves, including the bow, and hit Loft. Use a normal Loft, with 'Rebuild with 12 control points,' hit OK.

Well, check it out, to me it doesn't look too hot because there are shadows that indicate a uneven surface so let's give it the RebuildSrf treatment. Select the surface and hit RebuildSrf and make the settings 8 U and 8 V.

Congratulations - you've just completed the most difficult part of this tutorial. In the next section, we will finish the hull and add a deck and details.
