Question regarding the garboard strake

Recommended Posts



i have some questions about how i should do the garboard strakes best.


a) propper alignment - how do i finally align the garboard, especially that it wouldn't come to high at the bow?

B) planking the deadwood - when i dry fit my garboard, if i let it run without bending, it will run in a steep angle up the deadwood. is the garboard wrong or should i bend it, that it follows the keel? 



Current build:

  1. CalderCraft HM Brig Badger 1778 Scale: 1:64

On hold:

  1. Panart Royal Caroline 1749

Have you checked the planking tutorials here;  http://modelshipworldforum.com/ship-model-framing-and-planking-articles.php  They should give a clear picture.
