      How much does it matter if you allow for the planking from the layout offset lines? I am building a small 9' 6" Josh Slocum Spray and laying out my frames I really don't care if the extra 1/2" planking or what ever I use makes my boat a little fatter.

      The body plan in the design plans for Vintage (as with most design
      plans) are drawn to the outside of the planking. On the loft,
      the 'deducted body plan' are the additional lines drawn to the inside
      of the planking. The moulds are patterned from these lines. Are
      there other terms for 'deducted body plan'?
