Calculating the Tapers for the Planks

The used my tape measure which I cut off at 100 cm. I put it against the bulkhead that has the most distance to go. There is around 60 mm left so…

60mm / 5mm = 12 Planks

I measured the distance that needs to be covered at the very tip of the bow against the stem and it’s exactly 27 mm…

27mm / 12 Planks = 2.25mm per Planks

Therefore, around between the bulkhead number one and two I will start tapering from 5 mm to 2.25 mm.

In the stern I will still retain the 5 mm to 3 mm long taper that I do with my Ibex Plane.
