Thank you guys for your kind words. Cheers! John.
Please explain Dave what you mean by the French system of framing?even though Kingston Naval yard was a royal English yard most of the shipwrights were French from Quebec. The shipwright who built the St Lawrence William Bell was Irish who worked in a French yard in Quebec and I think his brother John had a yard in Quebec.
could be why the framing of the St Lawrence was a French system of framing and not the standard English bends and filler system.
I tried to up load a PDF but it was to big at 25 megsHi John
First, glad to hear you are in good health and planning to start building. I have just come across your post and find it fascinating, As someone who loves history and model ships, I can get lost in a topic like this. @Dave Stevens (Lumberyard) Your attachment on the Silent St. Lawrence is one of the most exquisitely written pieces I have read in a long time. Do you possibly know where one can obtain a copy?
Kind regards - Heinrich
