You are making a great nailing pattern on the hull, and we can see, that you follow here the given by Jean Boudriot.
Following the location of the different frames. Also correct at the ends of planks at the joints.

Kortes and Uwe, great way and make lines to mark where the nails should be. I didn't notice the pencil jig to begin with, thank you.

Dear KNUT,
I didn't kept count in the process of buiding, but approximately there are 3700 treenails.

Dear Uwe. I corrected this mistake later. You have a photo of the brother of La Jacinthe - Topaz , a great model.

That is a lot of treenails!! How many hours did it take to nail them? One more question, the trenail head will be flush with the deck (заподлицо с доской обшивки) or you will leave the head?

Dear Jim.
Treenails on the deck are flush with the deck , on the hull too, although on the hull in ideal, 0,1 mm could be left.
I have apent two weeks of my vacation to make nailing.

Basically I’ve finished nailing.
I finally got around to overhang. It is painted, taffrail is covered with pear tree and black hornbeam. I made it with a small margin, when the enclosures are set I will finish the taffrail. 8113181132811338113481135
