lurkerjoe Posted December 11, 2014 Share #1 Posted December 11, 2014 I'm building the Glad Tidings Pinky Schooner as my first wooden kit (will start a log soon) and have reached the planking phase and have a few questions. The kit includes a planking layout which I have used to mark my belt lines. When transfering plank widths, I ran into a number of snags and just went with using a planking fan template for the marks. I used artist tape as batons, adjusted to get a smooth curve, and remarked belt lines where needed. I've found while marking plank widths that my belt marks are different on each side at just a few bulkeads, which results in slightly different sized planks (less than 5mm). Should this be worrisome? Should I duplicate one side or should I use a different sized plank on one? I'm not quite sure what the proper way to go about it is. I do admit the planking process has been a little scary.
