My question to dear colleagues: the boat keel was upholstered with a steel strip or not?

It wouldn't have been steel if it were there, it would have wood held on with staples.  The reason being is if the ship grounded, those wood pieces would have come loose and protected the keel.    I have no idea if a ship that size would have had this as I've only seen it on (French for this) frigates and larger ships so I think the smaller ones would not have had this.

A lot of mysteries left behind Mr. Bodri, it this is not to ask, unfortunately... On these sketches I see two different designs of steps. Am I wrong?

What I see is that there's a raised platform and and what looks to be another one more forward but on the top view it doesn't show.  This is the cutter (a ship's boat) right?  Are there any other drawings of these areas?  I don't have this monograph to check but I did some logs which I linked to below.  There's several others but these two are still in work.


Have look here:

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to “Advance Ship Modeling Through Research”. We provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model ships.

The Nautical Research Guild has published our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, since 1955. The pages of the Journal are full of articles by accomplished ship modelers who show you how they create those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you the correct details to build. The Journal is available in both print and digital editions. Go to the NRG web site (www.thenrg.org) to download a complimentary digital copy of the Journal. The NRG also publishes plan sets, books and compilations of back issues of the Journal and the former Ships in Scale and Model Ship Builder magazines.
