the first problem

so, i'm ready to put in the lower deck, you can see it in the plan... when i look at the illustarations in the book i see planks inbetween the keelson and the heavy lengthwise planks, they look like they're laid directly on the futtocks, but i don't see any indication of them in the plans as drawn

looking at the pictures of men working standing on these filler boards i decided they were plywood put in to give a place to stand while working... and not a permanent part of the ship

jigs for the floor

so i don't have to hold up the cross beams in the air

i found a picture (from building the dyfken, i think) of the kind of deck i'm building.. not that it goes straight across, no curve

i cut the patterns (had to be spliced together from 2 pieces and mounted them on heavy card

turns out my cross beams don't match the pattern... so the cut outs for the futtocks were just elminated

and then

for the fun part
after figuring out just where the step for the mast needed to end up
i tacked down the jibs on both sides.. they will need to be cut out and removed before the actual flooring is laid
then i started the cut and fit process to fit the first cross piece
since these pieces are small and straight and tricky to shape, i make them from wood... for the same reasons i make masts and yards from wood

You are in inventive man, Ken. But believe me, the lower planking on the bottom of the hull is laid flat on the frames, with nothing between it.
Glad you are back.

abe

yes, i see that in the plans, but they seem to show small raised sections fore and aft

from looking into several books, it seems like the lower planking might be 12" wide, i assume it would have the butt ends offset, like the planking of a deck, i am also guessing that it would be nailed, rather than pegged

The statenjachten (?) have always intrigued me. Until recently, it was the last digital model I had made. I've considered turning it into a paper model but it may be a bit too complex for my design skills at this point.

I'll be following this build for sure!
