Cape Cod Frosty CNC
« on: May 18, 2017, 10:52:51 AM »
Hi! I'm a boatbuilding student and have been tasked with creating a CNC cut file and autocad drawing of a Cape Cod Frosty. My school has a Frosty kit that I am using to create a plug and mold for my final project (which will be composite built with 2x2 twill weave flax and bio resin), in exchange for the kit I have to come up with the digital files. After scouring the internet, I can't find any resources for actual lines plans or a table of offsets, and the kit I have has a ton of discrepancies (unfair lines, non-symmetrical transoms, etc). I did some reverse lofting and traced the pieces from the kit on a 6" grid, but am having a lot of trouble fairing the lines in autocad. Has anyone else created a digital drawing of a boat from a kit? Any pointers or resources would be greatly appreciated, and at this point I'd offer up my first born child to anyone with a table of offsets or full plans (not just patterns) for a Frosty!

Hi Kate,  I might be able to help you.  Where did you get the kit?

Have you contacted Tom Leach, father of the Frosty? 
He lives in Harwich, MA

I sailed #265 for several years until I no longer had weekends to sail in the winter.  Fun boat, cold.
