Discussions around designing small boats including kayaks and canoes.

Looking for kayak design program

Hi All-

I am looking for a design program that I can use on my computer that will do what I want it to do.

What I want to be able to do is take the lines of a skin baidarka that I made a few years back, and adopt that hull shape to a frame and stringer construction, like Tom Yost uses for his boats.

I am looking design the boat off of the actual dimensions of the boat, and have the program be able to give me the offsets of the frame at whatever point I decide. That way I can have a frame just where I want it.

And I am looking to do this automatically, not manually.

If anyone knows a program that has this functionality please let me know!
