drawings below illustrate the wire frame of the Cape Ann Expedition as seen
in the CAD program. Only a half hull is shown in the lower two drawings
to reduce the clutter of the lines. Please note that the drawings are not
foreshortened. In other words the lines are a pure 2D projections without
a perspective. A perspective allows you to see objects as they appear to
a camera or in real life.
An example: If you look down train tracks, they appear to converge to a single point in the distance. In the case of a drawing like this they would appear parallel to each for ever. This makes the objects closer to the viewer appear the same size as distant objects. In real life (due to perspective), the portion of the kayak that is farther from the observer would appear smaller. The dimensions and proportions, however, are correct.
