It is slightly slower than expected with the riders. The measurement takes a lot of time. In addition, the upper side of the riders needs to be chamfered. The deck beams, which are subsequently included in the riders,  should be placed on a flat level. This can be done in a different way, but I follow to drawings. This means that each bar is separately flattened on the upper side.

The riders in the bow should further be significantly twisted and bent. Yesterday afternoon I spent the whole afternoon with steaming and bending of these two beams. Between bending and adjusting the riders I placed the first beams under the riders. The result is good.... at least I am satisfied.

After a whole night and morning measuring and drawing, I could place this afternoon the first four shelves of the Riders. The base there is now therefore.

At this time, the Rider need to be placed.  The deck beams of the Orlop Deck shall be placed om this Rider. Once this Riders are fitted at both  sides, I can well determine the curves of the planking.

To be continued.

The boarding of the hold is progressing slowly, but we are progressing steadily.  If I briskly work one day, I put 10 to 12 boards. Each shelf is approximately 13 cm long and is provided with a minimum of 32 pens. Furthermore, it is a big job to sanding the shelves. The wood is so hard that I even very fine dust with a 80 grit. Sanding takes therefore more time.

In recent days I have the backlog shelves replenished and bought an electric steamer oon te second market for € 10.00.

Steaming the wood I do outside, because the wood has to be pretty steamed long. After nearly an hour steaming, it was quite easy to clamp twisted and bent the wood.
 

So we are really on Steam

The production of the hold is good. The front end of the drainage channel is built into the planking and the first curve begins to become visible.

I have to go take care of something to gain steam in or near the workplace. I get namely to make more and more with the fact that a board needs to be something twisted or bent. The boards are now approximately 6 x 4 mm and the walnut has a fine structure. This makes it almost impossible to bend slightly when the timber is cold.

In the past week I've cut some wood for planking and I'm so quietly started at the base. This is now ready and on this basis I can work forward and work backwards.

The "Kelson" the "Stemson and 'Sternson are in place. The 'Sternson "gave a lot of measuring. The reverse must connect to the Transomspanten. I can now get started with the planking of the hold.

I put all the drawings of the sections in order and sandwiched them between two boards. I have now a kind of booklet and I can scroll through the ship. This is going to help me with the board of the hold.


On both sides of the 'Kelson' comes to lay a drainage gutter. Both of these gutters come  together in Section K byf the pumps. In addition, there will be at the top of the hold with an air gap and underneath 'Top and But' boards.

The 'Stemson' and the first elements of the 'Kielson' are placed, sanded and fitted with brass pins. All connections are made with the milling machine. We work ourselves to 0.1mm again. Holm Oak is incredibly hard, but he works perfectly. After polishing it even begins to shine.


Next week I'm going to produce another 'Keilson' parts and places. Afterwards follow the 'Sternson' and must reconnect to the rear frames (Transomframes).

We have started and are therefore fully engaged in the research work, drawings and production.
 
First of all, should be made for the Hold the "keelson" the "Stemson 'and' Sternson. The research indicated that the drawings of John McKay deviate from the drawings in the book "The Anatomy of Neson's ships. The 'Stemson' on my drawings are made into two parts and construction in the 'Sternson' also differs. I just follow the drawings of John McKay.

The "keelson" consists of several components. The parts are connected with each other by use of a hooked 'joint. Also, differences are here again, in particular, the position of the connections. In one, the obvious connections are standing, etc., etc. Here I also follow the drawings of John. The 'Hooked' connection should still be drawn here.

The "keelson" the "Stemson 'and' Sternson 'are made of Holm Oak. The planking of the hold is made of American walnut/Black Walnut.


The timber for the components is complete. In the coming days, the components are custom made and placed in the hold. Meanwhile, elaborate drainage gutter and drawing. Work enough so.

The stock of wood is replaced. The workshop is clean and we can start phase 2.... the construction of the hold.
The coming days drawing some parts  and then I can start the machines
