Help neede with deck planking
- by Terry58 On Jun 19, 2016 - 11:22 PM
Hi all

I have just started my second wooden ship The Golden star

I have put together the bulkhead and started laying down a few hull planks, so far so good, however how should I fix the deck planks, they are supplied on sheets 4inch long and about twenty planks wide, do I have to lay these individually and stager the joints or can they be layed in sheets ?

Any tips advice welcome
