As promised, here is the tutorial by Jack Nastyface (Keith Harris) from MSW 1.0.  Enjoy, and I hope it is as useful for you as it was for Sheehan1when it was created in 2012.

Neither should a ship rely on one small anchor, nor should life rest on a single hope.

While nicely presented, there is some confusion about the bearding line aft. This line concerns framing, not planking. Usually, unless there is a skeg, the planking continues aft all the way to the rabbet of the stern post.
