     As I was able to get three ribs on each sheet---I still have two sheets to use for decking.

Now I will begin padding the backs with 1/8" bass wood, to make a serface to glue and pin the hull planking and decking.

Santa,

I don't know anything about building sailing ships but I would say you are off to a fine start by the looks of it.

As a scratch builder of model sailing ships, I am interested in the subject of your post. However, there is not a picture of the proposed ship that is to be built. Is this print that ship in question ?

Happy modeling   Crackers    Indifferent

Santa,

Looks like you have all the ribs done.  What's the next step, planking?

As of today--only 4 of 12 ribs are dun.  Keel will be next--then decking--then planking.
