Nice job Kevin its looking very good indeed  :-))   The limber passages are all about drainage and there is usually a limber passage underneath the frames too.  It's a small passage that is cut into the frames that allows any water to pass between the bottom of the frames and the planking.  Keep the updates coming  O0

Good evening everyone


Day 43 internal planking port side only up to lower deck support


got rid of loads od crappy wood doing this, very splintery, still to be filled treenailed and sanded, then i can work out how much planking needs to go on the other side and start working out where the mast steps and half decks are going to go

good morning everyone


im full lo ideas, normally most, are out of my skill sets, or a lot of work required for which  there will be little or of no use


treenailing the lower deck was one of those, so i stopped the idea of 100's of cocktail sticks and just simulated the effect with drilled holes and wood paste

good evening everyone


over the last couple of days i have been getting used to the two Proxxon tools, gaining some experience, the miller is new, the table saw is new but never been used in anger


as im scratch building the middles and lower decks these will get used more and more


it has taken 3 or 4 attempts to get the lower 1/2 deck platforms right, they are the correct sixe but the exposed wood is over scale, but will do for now

Hi Kevin


I have a few Proxxon machines so have quite a bit of experience with them. The thing to watch with the Table FET Saw, which is the same model I have, is that you must push thicker timber through slowly or the blade gets over heated, expands and starts to wobble making the saw cut wider and then your cut is smaller and will not have a straight edge.


If I'm teaching you how to sucks eggs please feel free to let me know  :-))

sorry my post dont seam to be working recently, something with one of my settings must have changed
anyway the forward lower deck was put in after ensuring the mast stop was in the correct position



both decks are being made up as i go along, but only the lower one will be fixed for now



a lot of adjusting is required as the kit was not deigned to take the lower deck beams
