What is the purpose of the staggered wale in Amati's Revenge? Doesn't it lose it's main purpose of strengthening the hull when its interuped in this way? I can't find any other examples like this. Chris Watton puts a lot of thought and reasearch in his models so there must be a good reason it's there. I am going to build this kit but I not sure about this feature. I'll probably lose the stern gallery also, although it does look cool with one.

I seem to recall a contemporary drawing or print of such an arrangement, but can't recall where I saw it. Presumably the logic is that the foremost port and hawsehole don't cut through this wale. And, as you say, Mr. Watton does his homework.
