How to loft boat hull?

Im trying to figure out how to loft boat hulls. I got some books in boat building but they dont really explain lofting part. Anybody know where I can get step by step instructions on hull lofting. Any engineering based books? I keep reading its very easy yet I still have no clear explanation

I know how to model it once I have the curves. What Im looking for is a tutorial on how the curves are drawn up the witter lines and the other ones. How the grid is made and how they are lined up to one another

First make sure your plans are in an image format. Open a sketch. Click on tools-sketch tools-sketch picture, add an image of the plans to the sketch. Just re size the picture of the hull lines to scale it correctly. Use the lines on the picture as a reference for a spline curve. This is what I am currently doing with the boat that I am modelling. It works perfectly.
