Newbe from SW Oregon

Hey there! I'm not new to ship model building but am still a novice. I have built the Armed Virginia Sloop and the picket boat, both from Model Shipways. I am currently working on the 18th century long boat. Still scratching my head about the garbord planks. Do I taper them gradually or as the picture shows more not so much. If a "sharper" bow curve is used, it seems I will have to curve the next plank somewhat "unnatrally".  Any input?

Welcome! I don't know the answer but you probably will get more visibility in the Building, Framing, Planking and Plating subsection of the forum.
