If it is easier for you to use full length planks then use them, but if you want to use shorter planks, the best thing is to pin a full length plank first to get a nice line to guide the short planks and then replace the long one with short ones, hope you know what I mean,
Best regards John

Hi Uwe,
Sovereign of the Seas, soleil royal, HMS Prince, Zeven Provincien etc etc. Definately my favorite time. During 18th century you see much more standardized ships compared to the 17th century.

Yes can understand your point. I like to see them, interesting vessels, therefore I have also a lot of books of this period. Also the paintings of the de Veldes brothers...... but harder to build, especially because of the decorations and carvings.....but maybe with my new set of chisels, let us see.
In moment i like it very much, if you guys are building them..... ;)

I am investigating the possible scratch build with cad cam and cnc of a dutch flute (fluit) Zeehaen that Abel Tasman used to sail around Australia and visit New Zeeland ( called after the Dutch procincie Zeeland) So after my 18th century RC back to the 17th. I have a book and very detailed set of drawings of this vessel.
