I will build another mock up gun carriage with a cannon and se how they will line up.
are you going to use what is on your plans for the guns or did you want me to post drawings with dimensions?
I did post the 6 pounder but took it down when I realized I put the dimensions of a 4 pound on a 6 pound drawing.

Please post the dimensions for the guns,the mockup is for checking the cannon/gunport centering and elevetion only,the lenght of the guns is irrelevant but I need the dimensions for the real guns.Thanks

I can not export a PDF out of CAD the measurements are in the drawing so if you printed them then measured the length of the cannon everything will fall in place.

a 6 pound cannon is 72 inches a 4 pound cannon is 55 57 ish in length

I will post the carriage drawings for the 6 pounder like I did for the 4 pounder.

these measurements were taken from field note of actual 4 and 6 pound guns.

Almost all the gunports are ready only at the bow aren’t,not yet glued,I have decided ,so the gunports will follow the deck lining.

good call that is what I would have done because that is what Coleman shows on the original drawing

I forgot to mention the gunport sides won’t be perpendicular on the waterline, the gunport will be tilted like would sit on the deck.

Wonderful build so far! I can't wait to see how you finish up the port tubes where they meet the hull planking. Will these plans ever be made available?
I would kill to be able to create vectors of the bulkheads that one could scale to any size.

Thanks, Ron, I have part of the basic plans from John Andela and Mike41 made some (a lot) of additional plans and modifications as he is designing an Ontario Pof cross-section plan set and also you have seen now from Dave the gun carriage and cannon plans. The plans from John Andela will be for sale once he finished all of them.

Also, Mike41 made drawings for the upper deck, it is not going to be a planked false deck, instead POF deck beams and partially planked so you will be able to see the lower gundeck with all the rigged cannons and deck fittings.

G'day Zoly.
Couldn't sleep, so I'm looking around and doing some catch up.
I like the gun ports very much. Are you going to trim them before or after the first planking?
