Do you know the reason behind diagonal planking? Was it stronger somehow? Horizontal planks give the ship strength and rigidity, I’ll assume diagonal planks do the same, but what was the specific reasoning behind diagonal planks? 

It is designed for covering the hulls of boats, which should have the greatest transverse and longitudinal strength.
