'Bezier Chine' is a High-Tech Design – Low--Tech Construction process that enables ‘Metal Boat Builders’ to fabricate true round metal sailboat hulls as easily as a hard chine design.
‘Bezier Chine’ design is based on a computer enhanced application of 'Approximate Development'. A sheet-metal layout method, dating back to a much earlier time, used to develop 'Warp' or 'Compound' architectural surfaces onto a 'Single Plane'.
My first book 'True Round Metal Boat Building' began with the theory of ‘Approximate Development’ takes the mystery out of Bezier Chine. I did not Father ‘Approximate Development’. I did however successfully apply ‘Approximate Development’ to the ultimate ‘Warped’ or ‘Compound’ surface - A Sailboat Hull. In this book 'True Round Metal Boat Design' I am going to share my Design knowledge with you.
‘True Round Metal Boat Design’ will cover the idiosyncrasies specifically related to metal boat design and construction.
