Has anyone seen an example of a joggle plank used at the stern of a ship, as opposed to solely at the stem?  I'm working on planking my "Independence" and I could actually work a joggle in at the stern.  The hull has an odd shape.

Do you mean a stealer plank?

No, Russ, a joggle plank, where two strakes approaching the stern join a single plank back to the stern post.  Just like the photo, but at the stern, not the bow.

That is actually a drop plank. Generally they are not needed at the stern. The stealer is more common back there since the area to cover is greater at the stern than at the bow.
