I had to take my main computer work station off line because it seems to have been downloading stuff behind my back and then the computer gets all mucked up. so now I have a dedicated laptop just for on line use. When it gets mucked up I can just nuke it and start again.

ok you asked me questions about how to measure and install bow cant frames. For most model ship builders the bows and sterns are a scary part of the build. To make matters even more difficult bows were constructed different in different yards, countries and periods. The way Hahn built his bows were typical for North America and the time period. The British ship yards over in England built bows differently.

lets check out some bow details and the first is the rabbit line you can see it running along the stem and it is where the hull planking sets into. Now some builders include a rabbit some builders don't, personally I consider the rabbit as part of planking so if I am building a framed model I do not cut one.

When building from a Hahn plan he was very accurate in his drawings so there is no need to measure anything. The cant frames will automaticly fall right in place. on the sheet of frame drawings looking at cant frame 5 the red arrows show the distance from the base of the jig to the rabbit

looking at the cant frame in place you can see the same dimensions. Here the two red arrows are the same locations in the drawings, the blue arrow is pointing to the rabbit and the lower blue arrow is showing the exact location of the top of the extension. if you make your cant frame to match the plan it will fall right in place.
