Chapter 5 finishes up planking the large spar deck, adding rivets (an option) to the bulwarks and adding decorative moldings (also an option) to the main rails.

Completing the Planking

Section 5.1.1

In section 5.1, the practicum addresses the counter - that is, the upper and lower counters. Since there are two counters, upper and lower, I'll use the two adjectives to eliminate any confusion. See my paper on

Section 6.1.1: Planking Upper Counter

... and my paper on

Section 6.1.2: Planking Lower Counter

...

Bulwark Details

Section 5.1.3

This section always bothered me - first by the difficulty and second by the fact that there are so many ways to do this. I've put together a couple of papers on the subject: Planking Concerns and The Planking Process . However, I've decided on another approach, all completely different from what I've seen up to this time. Read my paper and status

Section 5.1.3: Bulwark Rivets

for more information and how the process came out.
