The Rising Wood is turning into the bane of my plans. I must have done something to correct it last time but since I did not record what that is have utterly forgotten.
Anyway if you look at the bearding line on the plans it matches the traced cant frames stern/bow exactly so appears to be correct (drawn by offsetting a vertical line on the body plan)
All's well. But the curve it creates on the square frames drops very low indeed so much so that midships there is only 0.9 mm (at 1:48 scale) thickness. This must be wrong.
I have rechecked old research posts and the plan sets I possess and not managed to resolve this.
The Naiad plans appear to follow the bearding line from the rear of the ship but the bearding line is visibly lower at the front of the ship (in relation to the rising wood) so it is not being used the entire length. The other plan sets (Swan,Euryalus) seem to match.
Therefore am I correct in making the assumption that the rising wood follow a set height (Swan appears to say 7 inches) for the majority of the square frames and should rise to join the rear bearding line using a curve?
My second assumption is that the notches are higher still than the height of the rising wood and not notched into the rising wood.
Anyway this is obviously an abject lesson to track this sort of details to avoid this brain freeze..
