Now I lay the planks of the lower deck. For this I use the deck pattern as described in the book 'Historic ship models' by zu Montfeld.

I use pine planks for the decks. I searched for the planks with the finest grains that I dispose of. To imitate the caulking between the planks, I glue strips of 220 gram black paper on the edge of each plank.

The after end of the cross section is not bound by a deck beam. To assure that the deck planks will have the correct length, I clamp a wooden lath on the after frame.

To make it easier to determine where I will have to drill for the tree nails afterwards, I mark the locations of the deck beams with a pencil after laying each plank.

The lower deck after being tree nailed. In the front there is a small widening of the planking where the ladder to the gun deck has to come.
