Harbor barge hull planking


Recommended Posts

A question about the hull planking of harbor barges. They are basically rectangular, slab sided vessels with some sloping of the bow (?)  and stern areas from the deck to the waterline and down to a keel. Would the planking across the slanting bow/stern areas overlap the boards of the sides or would they be interleaved? The 2" x 6" scale boards (planking) are glued onto a plywood former.

 

I ask as I have an old Sheepscot Scale Products kit of a pile driver on a barge. Pictures are too small or grainy, even with extra light and using my Optivisor, to tell what the configuration is. Just gathering info for a future build.
