Brief intro to naval architects in the US.
Learning CAD - a hull lofting exercise.
I wrote a tutorial so I could remember next time... Well received on the Turbocad forum
too. (Always good for traffic). Oh, and learning CSS at the same time. I teach a CAD
program I can't afford. ($10K AUD), this one I can...
... there was more information about Noah's Ark hidden away in all those flood legends
around the world? Many design choices based on the scant Biblical record might need the
slightest hint to sway a decision, and some meaningless or trivial point might be a key.
Well, it's worth a try anyway...
Broaching is when a ship goes side-on to the waves - a great way to get it to capsize. If
you ever wondered why you can capsize Noah's Ark in the simulator, now you know.
It is not supposed to be in a beam sea!
Yeah, ship models. The "Ark in a bathtub" finally got some bow and stern additions, and
it floated with exactly the predicted trim. What a fluke...that I built Allen's hull shape
accurately enough. Next, a few more logging tests then off to the beach with a box shaped
ark for comparison. Good witnessing tool - every Christian should have one.

If you get through it there is a pretty picture at the end.
