Surface modeling a ship hull

OK I am way too deep into this personal project without a paddle.  I am modeling the USS Missouri (or at least the hull) using publicly-available blueprints.  Using the orthographic views, every available bulkhead, and every available deck view, I've put....something together.  The bulkheads are sketched, and every deck except the bottom is modeled as a surface.  The problem is I can't get a surface loft or surface bound to come even close to working past the first few bulkheads or decks.  I have some Solidworks experience as a current senior ID student, including surfacing, but this is a higher level than what I'm capable of.  Went into this shooting from the hip and it shows.  If anyone has some direction for me, even if that direction is "give up", please share


Solidworks 2016, by the way.
