I put my Brush in a Large Pill Bottle so that it would stay moist the entire time I’m using it. Otherwise, if you leave it out, it will dry on you.
I’m using the .5mm x 5mm Sapelle Wood for the outer layer. It’s very similar to Mahogany. I had to special order some from eBay.
I am going to go with convention and call the Garboard Strake as the A Plank.
I glued in 5 Strakes without any Tapers. But now I will have to Taper down to 3.33mm to make them all fit to where the Wale are.
I wasn’t liking how the Planks met the Stem so I ended up putting Fillers in the Gaps.
It’s got a rough look but I like it. You have to figure a Ship like the HMS Endeavor was going to take a lot of punishment, going down to the Antarctic, etc. 🤔🙄😲
Garboard strakes or A strakes. The next two are the first broad or B strake and second broad or C strake. Working upward come the bottom strakes, lowers, bilge strakes, topside strakes, and uppers also named sequentially as the D strake, E strake, etc. The uppermost along the topsides is called the sheer strake. Strakes are joined to the stem by their hood ends.
