pictures using new clamps to stablize build, good thing about new clamps whe I get ready to do the Wales just have to move them up, this just supports the framing at this point

looking through the Hahn archives I found 2 way he used to measure the height of wales, caprails and decks.

first way was to measure from the plans and transfer those measurements to the model.

another method he used was to make a pattern from stiff card stock

in the case of the Halifax the patterns are created direct from the plans. For the wale use a stiff piece of card stock and cut it at the top of the wale like this. The pattern is set against the model and the wale line is traced.

you do the same for the cut off line when cutting the hull from the jig

when setting the deck clamps there are 2 ways you can do it. By using the same methods as above you need to transfer you measurement to the inside of the hull

the colored areas are the card stock patterns

another method of setting the height of the deck clamps I used the same idea except I made my card board pattern to fit the inside of the hull.

The colored area is the card board pattern cut from the plans. at the bottom I cut the pattern to fit the curve of the keelson and the top of the pattern to match the lower edge of the deck beams.

I set the pattern on the keelson and used a straight edge like a 6 inch steel ruler and set it on the top of the pattern and marked the sides of the hull at each beam location

just as a suggestion what I do with every model is glue spacer blocks between the frames at the location of the wales. Once the wales on these blocks are covered up. the blocks keep the framing stable and the hull stays stiff.

wonderfull Dave will do that method still will show you what I labeled it helps to identify certain elements will remove and re do the wales and the cut offs great way of doing that, did you notice the type of clamps I am using guess where it comes from china of course they are $10.00 for 10 but the shipping is $20.00, but to me well worth the price truly helps with holding things steady in place . THANKS AGAIN Don

Question Dave, on the patterns what I intend to do is cut the wale and cut off patterns out of the plans and rubber cement to 90 pound bond board, the question is is the bottom of the patterens the bottom of the keel, Thanks Don

Don

Looks like you are progressing nicely on the Halifax and asking the right questions.
