Selecting Lofting Floor Timbers

Posted By on May 26, 2009

The lofting floor is a large, flat area that parts of the boat are drawn out full size.  Many of the parts of the boat are made directly on this floor, and these can be huge and weigh hundreds of pounds each.  Therefore, the floor itself has to be made of some serious timber.  This is what we mean when we say Serious Timbers:
