Hi,

I have just received issue 5 of HMS Surprise, the instructions go into the lower planking.

The picture shows a plank approx. half way between upper planking and keel.

How do you determine the position of this plank?

Thanks for any help.

Wilfy

wilf,don't laugh,but I use a bit of string,but if you have a cloth tape measure,even better,start at the bow 2nd.rib place measure at the upper last plank,over the rib and down to the keel,what ever the measurement,half it and mark the rib,same with the stern rib,then mark all the other ribs same way.
good luck.

Hi Wilfy

Did you get a copy of the planking book that I gave people. If not let me know, it explains in that the easiest way to mark out for your first plank.

Thanks for info & fast reply, Karl. Sounds pretty straight forward.

Hi Chris would love a copy if you don't mind. Thanks.
