NURBS Sailboat on Ocean (Modeling/Animation)

The objective of this PDF tutorial is to model a sailboat using (primarily) NURBS
surface modeling techniques. We will also animate the sailboat using Blender’s
“ocean” modifier.
The video can be viewed HERE.
Open a new Blender file.
Select the default cube and lamp objects and delete them (XKEY).
Select the default camera object and move it to layer 2 (MKEY).
Go to top orthographic view (NUMPAD-7 + NUMPAD-5)
