Developing the shape of the new transom was an exercise in real-world lofting. 20' long fairing battens were used to define the shape, with a good 8' of the batten run out onto the original hull to insure a smooth transition from old to new. In this photo you can also see smaller battens run perpendicular to insure fairness in all three dimensions. The short sticks within this maze transferred the lines onto temporary stations used to pattern the final stations. In this view you can also get a sense of the amount of interior volume the new transom added to the hull. The changes added 3' to LOA, 4' the LWL, and allowed the rudderpost to be moved aft 6'.
