Basic question about sheetmetal and sub boathull

Hi everyone

 

I'm designing a small AUV for a company and I'm a little stuck on the shell of the vessel...

The shell is gonna be made of PEHD sheets bend from forward to aft section like a carvel build boat, therefore I need the sheetmetal feauture flatten to make the cut drawings for the PEHD sheets.

The problem is I first made all the profiles and was then gonna drag splines from profile to profile in order to get the lines to make a lofted bend from. But the lofted bend doesn't take splines as input... any good inputs as how I can get around that issue or design in a smarter way??

I do not have much boat designing experience so I'm all ears :-)

I've included a couple of picture of my intentions, they are still most sketches...

Thanx guys

Martin

 

This is where my idea sprung from....
