Good evening everyone,

I'm confused Confused

in the magazine, the keel braces are fitted flush to the top of the keel, yet in Tomick's build he has them fitting flush to the bottom of the keel!

Who's right?

Hi DD
Checking with other builder diaries, everyone else seems to have positioned them at the top.
But does it really matter?Huh

I think i have answered my own question.
Further on in tomick's build diary you can see it flush with the top!

Ah good news!!!

The exact position doesn't really matter, but you don't want them flush with the bottom as they will interfere with the plank next to the keel.

Two solutions if you have put them too low down. If you used PVA, apply a hot iron to the brace. This will soften the glue and you will be able to prise the brace off. Plan B is simply to sand the lower corners off !

Cheers

I think they are talking about the 2 strengthening pieces that are attached to the side of the keel pieces to improve the joint along the keel, rectangular bits that are glued to the joining keel sections.

Thanks Andy, but...

At the risk of sounding terminally dense, isn't there only one keel?

Confused Confused

None the wiser

Crying

*Does anyone realise just how painful it is to have quite a large (Normal) vocabulary only to be totally befuddled at all these nautical terms?

Sorry Capt should have made it clearer, issue 3 of mag described as bracing pieces, the rectangular pieces to join keel parts 1 and 2 to strengthen the joint between the two

LOL Laugh

No worries Colin, In fact I'm feeling rather generous so I'll give you another chuckle at my befuddlement..

ready?

being rather launch obsessed at the moment, I thought the topic related to the launch and not the actual hull of the Victory - Keel pieces?

Huh

Issue 3? (that's when the bells started jingling)

D'oh...

Thanks Andy - it all makes sense..

Now.

There was a last minute change to the step photo after my photo was taken, the keel braces should be flush with the top of the keel, though it makes no difference.

Hi Magpie

Try this post, it links to various sources.

Encyclopedia of Terms

It is a long job learning all these but I find it fascinating.

Until Zeptrader asked the question last night I thought a mouse was a furry thing with a long tail that you plugged into your computer somewhere Confused Confused

thats a good start for terms Mike, but I have found untill I get to the part of the ship that has an odd sounding nme it is for me at least quite impossible to learn them all.

Maybe I/we could start a thread that list's terms used during the progress of our build, just thinking aloud. I know there are 100's of terms but maybe the most common and if people want to add as they go then so be it, sort of a complete forum effort.

Only last night I was reading the rigging order and came upon this -

foreyard & sails
truss pendant - nave line


knock yourself out:)
