Many Thanks for the information - Usually the waterway is done with a slot in the frame - very interestingHi Uwe,
you can´t compare the rabbet from the 18. century with the rabbet from the 17. century.
In the 17. century the rabbet in the frech/dutch shipbuilding was different. There is a little gap betwen the keel and the plank for the drainage.
Thats why the rabbet is further down. I know only one La Belle Model who has the correct rabbet.
You are right. In the front are the plank can´t fit in the keel. My rabbet isn´t finished yet.
The rabbet has a transition betwen horizonal and vertical. I will create this in my model
together with the finetuning from the Frames in this area

Many thanks for the tipp of this interesting book.This book i bought to verify the rigging rules from my original plan from my actual Projekt, the La Belle. Thanks to Herbert for this tip. Documentation for rigging a 17th century vessel ist not too easy to find. The list of books isn´t too long. Especially in german. This book works more with text than with illustrations. The pictures shows it. To get the benefit of the information in the book it´s necessary to read and understand the text. The rigging examples are mainly for english, danish, dutch and french ships. The book is also available in english.
