I’m having a senior moment, and need a kick start. When you make a tick strip for planking, do you start   (or end it) from the depth of the rabbet or the surface of the keel. It should be obvious, but at this particular moment it ain’t.

Hi Kurt, could you please explain what means a "tick strip"? Is this a first one from bottom of hull? The question however seems to be "loaded" and may be will require some sort of a sketch from you in order for me giving a proper answer.

I would think the bottom of the rabbit would most accurate. If you go from the surface of the keel you'll come up a bit short.

Using a paper guide to determine the length between sheer and keel to help determine plank width. I’ve done a few times but with big chunks of time between doing it. Actually, now that I think about it should be the depth of the rabbet. The first one from the bottom is the garboard.

Now it's clear. Sure we have to include the depth of rabbit in order to avoid nasty gaps in the hull.
