Main Deck Planking – Midship

I decided to create 3 different Posts for the Main Deck Planking.

What I did for the Planking is to divide the Ship into 3 different sections… Forecastle, Midship and the Poop Deck.

It sure makes it easier when you’re trying to line up the Planks having 3 different sections.

Anyway… Here’s the Midship Planking so far…

Notice the Midship aligns differently from the Forecastle… 🤔🤭😲

Notice that I have one long Strip of wood on the Port side of that set of Planks next to the Hatch? I cut it with my Mini Table Saw.

The Glue that I use for Deck Planking is Titebond II and occasionally SuperGlue for repairs.

I find that these Planks in the middle… You can’t really mass produce them as others. Well… You can, but I find that often you have to do a custom fit job so those mass produced planks need to be cut one way or the other.

Anyway, what I’m trying to say is that I Measure, Cut & Scribe each plank individually.
