Guy:

That is included in the keel. The keel and rising wood are NOT separate pieces in the Triton build. We designed the keel to be done with the keel and rising wood all together for ease of building. Remember, the framing and structural details for the Triton build are simplified from what you would see on the actual ship. It is still POF, but not the actual POF like the Echo or Swan class builds.

Hello Guy!

 

When I started this Practicum back in 2011 I did make lots of research and studied the plans and everything. I drawed lots of sketches just to explain myself how the hull would work. Then I realized that we are working with plans that are just for this task. An "easy" way to start with the POF scratch. No rising wood, no filling pieces, no diminishing strakes...

 

So I made a decision: Stick to the plans. It is up to us to improve them and add more and more details according to our skills.

 

Believe me, this practicum is far way beyond from where I was especting as a beginer in 2011.

 

 

 

Best wishes.

 

 

Daniel.

The sketches are just that. As you can see there´s not rising wood at all. The sketches are some "thinking" and might be wrong . It´s up to the moderators to erase this post.

Before the post is erased!

 

Thanks for the encouragement Russ, I will add the drawings to my files for future refrence. I need to do more research on the rising wood issue.

I would not worry too much about the rising wood issue. If you stick with the drawings, it will work just fine.

I will not worry too much about the rising wood but will definately do a little research on it.

 

Any way back to the keel, not that I have access to the full set of plans I have started my first re-work! Luckly just some additional cutting back of the fore end of the keel. first picture shows keel as first fabricated and the second picture shows the re-work still needing a little smoothing out.

Guy,

 

I use the upload functuon off MSW. It works just beautyful. Have a look at your last post. Perhaps you've uploaded the pictures twice?

Your first keel section looks good. I would redo the false keel. It seems that you have damaged it during your modification.

The false keel damage should not show when the outer piece of the gripe is glued in place.

I discovered that you can print out just a section of a PDF file by using clipboard and only printing out the section selected. Go to edit select take a snapshot click OK on pop-up and select print and it will only show the selected section! click print. I wanted to print only the Stern Deadwood and this scaled out perfectly.

Matrim, does that mean any pictures that have images of the HMS Triton on or in them can not be posted? this post only showed a section of the plan and in no way identified it as to being part of the Triton plan and it was a very useful section that can be used by others as it is not represented separtly in the build plans. I am a little confused but in the future will refrain from taking photos with any of the plans in the background nor will I post any pictures on the plans or parts of plans when I might have questions on a specific section!

Does or has any one drawn the profile lines at each station for the stern deadwood and stern post? I have finally figured out how to mill the upper part but I am not happy with the taper section below. I will go back through the drawing and see what I can find today

You are looking for the amount of taper at each section on the deadwood? I am pretty sure that was not drawn. You will need to eyeball it.
