    Boomkin and Bumpkin are one and the same thing, but bumpkin is more commonly used. Unfortunately the word bumpkin through some process unknown to me has come to be used in an uncomplimentary way of describing some inhabitants of rural communities. Being of pure mind, I would only use it to describe the part of a sailing vessel which was specified in an earlier post. I wouldn't dream of calling such an august person as yourself by such an epithet.

    Not wanting to split hairs, but I'm going to. Re the picture of the Fifie. The dipping lug is set on the foremast, so technically, it is a foresail not a mainsail. The standing lug is on the mizzen;

    DON'T DO IT ANDREW!!๐Ÿ˜ฎ
    If you do then the bulkheads/ribs definitely will tilt - backwards!!
    See attached pic for angle of the keel to the horizontal.

    PS That's not a bowsprit on the left.
    The bow is to the right. The rudder can be seen on the left.
    So that must be a 'sternsprit'!!๐Ÿ˜‰
    Nerys will surely know the correct name and fill in another gap in my education๐Ÿ‘

    Andrew - hate to say it but if you do that the hull shape is going to be distorted - will look all wrong and be difficult to plank...........
    Please check your PM's

    Thank everyone for your input. I have decided to make the bulkheads perpendicular to the keel, I cant imagine coming aboard a boat with the bulkheads leaning forward. I'd think I was drunk.

    Stand to be corrected Ron , but that looks like a much later diesel trawler. The drifters were largely old style longer & narrower steam engined trawlers using a small sail to "drift" along with nets out - at least that seems to be the case with all the articles & plans I have........
