This site is dedicated to the Design of Boats and Yachts using Rhino® or Rhinoceros® (both are registered trademark of Robert McNeel & Associates). The Design Technique covers several hull types. Each one is different and may require a different approach to draw the elementary curves. The series of “Amateur’s Notebook” cover a range of 10 to 30m LOA boats, yachts and vessels.
The text in each book explains clearly how to proceed in order to produce full set of plans using Rhino. Each book will propose frame dimensions corresponding to the hull along with Rhino file as mentioned from inside of the book.
VOLGA Is a flat bottom "Inland Waterways" vessel. She has a cargo looking shape above the water level. The construction is simplified -as usual- using a strong material: steel.
