Hi all

 

Should this part of the stern be planked? Or just painted?

Look at other cutters on this site, like Chuck's Cheerful. They all have the stern planked so I would say yes.

Yes it's Le Renard. Should the planking go horizontal or vertical?

Horizontal. I'd suggest looking for cutter's and schooners in the build log there are plenty :)

Definitely planked and horizontal as shown in the photos above.  Lesson for next model is to do that before running the side planks as they should overlap the stern pieces (as shown above).  At this point you'll have to do the opposite of that, but its not that big a deal with sanding and once the hull is painted.
