North light Puffer
« on: March 07, 2017, 12:56:56 am »

I've started to build my Puffer, got the bulkheads in, done the stern tube and rudder and drilled a couple of holes up forward. I have a problem at the rear bulkhead the instructions say fit part No 5  to forward face of bulkhead  to position shown on plan. I take it that No5 is the slightly radiused bit of balsa?


I just can't see exactly where to position it, nor why it is radiused. Is the deck slightly higher in the centre?

Martin, thanks for moving the post and for the link.
Doesn't really help as my Puffer is a Calder Craft puffer, slightly different to your build thread


Anyone else got an idea?

Decks on most ships are cambered ie a slight rise in the middle to facilitate drainage. I don't know your model but an educated guess for part 5 is that it is required to support the deck aft of the bulkhead.
