Ahhhh to be honest I think for this kinda job Rhino will be your best bet :). Rhino ain't that hard man, what type of boat are you making?

Yeah, having looked at it, you're probably best off just learning to use it.

Any other graphic software will be fairly similar to Rhino, and you'd still have to learn how to use it =P

I'm sure there are! We are on the internet you know ;)

Check out the tutes that come with Rhino trial (or check the Rhino site), and also... Google! Shouldn't take too long to find tutes, Rhino's becoming more and more popular.

In fact, look what the first result was: http://www.cgtutorials.com/c51/Rhinoceros

Or more specifically, http://www.3drender.com/rhino/boathtml/index.htm

I googled "rhino boat tutorial". Amazing, these search engine things.

Rhino's a mechanical modeling app, meaning basically however the boat is created in real life, can be created the same way in Rhino. So first you'll want to break down how you're going to model your boat - how is the boat constructed? Pick the edges, then make the edges, then create the surfaces from the edges.

Check out more tutes to see how things are done.
