    Graham:

    On mine I pressed the pins in with slightly modified pliers, ( a groove cut in to jaw to accept the pin) and then pulled them snug from the inside

    Scaling up or down can be cruel, or maybe that was the sea.

    Could we all submit our choice of question to a quizmaster for editing and posting? This group could re-write two thirds of current questions so that they are correct. Added bonus is it could end up having a more international flavour. Yes occasionally you will be faced with your own question

    Doug,

    I'm not worthy to hold Graham's saw blades, but I am learning from here. Is one going to have to submit a masterpiece for adjudication to be allowed admission to the Guild?

    If wood be the food of boats, plank on!

    I ran into the same issue with scaling up drawing, mostly with the framing. They don't seem to match up.

    Did you soak/steam the planks?

    I used heavy straight pins with glue to glue & 'nail' the planks, instead of clamping the plank in place. I watched a video on the rebuilding of BLUENOSE II. They had as much trouble fitting planks as the rest of usโ˜น๏ธ It looks good, are you pleased with the results?

    Planking is also installing the strips, not included in the question

    WHAT IS THE PROCESS OF INSTALLING STRIPS OF WOOD TO CREATE THE CURVES OF A HULL CALLED?

    and Bluenose carries 3 inch planking. thin?
