Hello everyone. I have just joined the forum having found this site while looking for information about model building.

A few years ago my wife bought me the HM Chatham Yacht kit and I have waited until retirement to start the build - my first wooden model............

I am at the stage of planking and have read numerous articles and watched videos and so I had a good idea of how to go about this. However, every ship is different. I am at the stage of putting the top planking onto the bulwark tabs and there is nothing in the instructions or on-line, that I can find, that provides detail on where/how to attach the planking at the bow, particularly as the planking is above the keel and has a gap in the middle for the bowsprit.

Hope this question is not too simple for you all, don't want to waste your time

Welcome aboard Brian,


Antony is right. Please start a buildlog and add some photos.

That is the best way to get help and advise when needed.


And you will never waste our time asking questions. We are all here to help, advise and learn from eachother.


I wish you smooth sailing with our gallant crew.

Thank you for all the messages of welcome and support. I will try and set up a build log and add some photos that I took earlier. I think that this is going to be a slow build because of all of the other activities that I have and the "Honey Do" list from my wife........................................................
