PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD

This unit standard is for people who work, or intend to work, in a yacht and boat building environment
where boat design and construction drawings must be read, understood and applied.

The learner will understand the complete process for bringing a boat from the two-dimensional view on
paper to its final three-dimensional shape. Additionally, the learner will have practiced and
accomplished this task by creating a scale half model of a hull form.

This includes:
     Demonstrate an understanding of the terminology associated with boat design and
         construction.
     Describe the materials and methods used in boat building and discuss their applications and
         limitations.
     Identify and discuss hull forms.
     Demonstrate an understanding of the features of a lines plan and t he process of its
         development.
     Demonstrate an understanding of the process of constructing a scale model from a
         lines plan.

LEARNING ASSUMED TO BE IN PLACE

This is an entry level unit standard, and there is no learning assumed to be in place beyond that which is
required for entrance to the level 2 qualification.

UNIT STANDARD RANGE
The ranges as indicated under the specific outcomes determine the scope and level of this unit standard.

All work is performed under supervision

SPECIFIC OUTCOMES AND ASSESSMENT CRITERIA

Specific Outcome 1
Demonstrate an understanding of the terminology associated with boat design and construction.

Range: Terminology includes, but not limited to: design criteria, hardware and specifications.

Assessment Criterion 1

Components, hardware and specifications in ‘boat design and construction’ are identified and their
application explained in terms of international standards for boat building.

Assessment Criterion 2

Boat design terminology is explained with reference to international standards for boat building.

Specific Outcome 2

Describe the materials and methods used in boat building and discuss their applications and limitations.

Assessment Criterion 1

Materials used in the construction of boats are identified and explained according to their range of uses
and limitations.

Assessment Criterion 2

The main methods used for the construction of boats are described according to the advantages,
disadvantages and limitations of each.

Specific Outcome 3

Identify and discuss hull forms.

Assessment Criterion 1

Hull forms are identified and explained according to their applications and limitations.

Specific Outcome 4

Demonstrate an understanding of the features of a lines plan and the process of its
development.

Assessment Criterion 1

A lines plan is drawn and its main features explained according to boat design principles.

Specific Outcome 5

Demonstrate an understanding of the process of constructing a scale model from a lines plan.

Assessment Criterion 1

A half-model is constructed according to a lines plan.


UNIT STANDARD ACCREDITATION AND MODERATION OPTIONS
         Anyone assessing a learner or moderating the assessment of a learner against this qualification
          must be registered as an assessor with the relevant Education, Training, Quality, Assurance
          (ETQA) Body, or with an ETQA that has a Memorandum of Understanding with the relevant
          ETQA.
         Any institution offering learning that will enable the achievement of this Qualification must be
          accredited as a provider with the relevant Education, Training, Quality, Assurance (ETQA)
          Body, or with an ETQA that has a Memorandum of Understanding with the relevant ETQA.
         Assessment and moderation of assessment will be overseen by the relevant Education,
          Training, Quality, Assurance (ETQA) Body, or by an ETQA that has a Memorandum of
          Understanding with the relevant ETQA, according to the ETQA`s policies and guidelines for
          assessment and moderation.
         Moderation must include both internal and external moderation of assessments at exit points of
          the Qualification, unless ETQA policies specify otherwise. Moderation should also encompass
          achievement of the competence described both in individual Unit Standards as well as the
          integrated competence described in the Qualification.
         Anyone wishing to be assessed against this Qualification may apply to be assessed by any
          assessment agency, assessor or provider institution that is accredited by the relevant ETQA.

UNIT STANDARD ESSENTIAL EMBEDDED KNOWLEDGE

Names, properties and appropriate application of:

         Boat building terminology
         Different materials and associated production processes
         Different hull forms and their relative advantages and disadvantages
         Lines plans

Consequences of:

         Inappropriate material selection
         Inappropriate choice of hull form
         Poorly faired lines
         Incorrectly measured offsets

Procedures and techniques

         Drawing a lines plan
         Calculating a table of offsets
         Construction of a half scale model
         Measuring

Theoretical basis

         The depiction of three dimensional shapes in two dimensional drawings
         Concept of ‘fairness’ as applied to boats
