Planking the bow of Miss Adventure  Empty
PostSubject: Planking the bow of Miss Adventure    Planking the bow of Miss Adventure  EmptyTue Feb 28, 2023 3:38 pm

Would much appreciate advice on planking the bow of Miss Adventure. Do the flat edges of the 1/8” framing at the bow require any beveling? Should I install any planking blocks to increase the area of the glueing surfaces? Also, are there going to be any serious contortions needed for the planking?
Thank you for any and all help.

Having now done quite a few planked hulls, I have not found it necessary to "bevel" or chamfer the edges of the planks. However if there is only one skin and you do not intend to give the final hull further treatment-doped tissue (which yopu should be familiar with building aircraft)or a skim of "filler" you would need to get as tight a fit between the planks as possible. An alternative is to give the finished hull a coat of water proof PVA when you have finished sanding and then give it a further light sand-also gives you a smooth stable surface to paint/varnish.

To bend the planks round the formers or ribs, it is best to make sure they are pliable by soaking or if you are really particular steaming them first. I also always pin the planks to the ribs with short needlework pins. Lastly don't make the mistake a friend made using ordinary PVA glue which he discovered was not water proof

Many thanks. This is really useful, especially the pinning suggestion.
