Hello Cri-Cri

Quick question, hope you don't mind.   Were there actually slots for the deadeye chains cut into the channels on French ships in the 17th century?  The British had holes rather than slots until 1771 according to Goodwin in The Construction and Fitting book on page 187.  Also it may have been different for the French, I don't know, but for the British the outboard edge thickness of the channel was substantially thinner than the inboard edge.  I am curious to know if the French and English differed on these two things.

Thanks in advance.
