Copper nails and roves, what size to use.???
I am building a 18ft launch, using copper nails and roves and lapstrake planking.
The boards are 1/2 inch thick.
It will have an inboard diesel 18 hp engine.
The board are 6 inches wide and there will 10 on each side.
The question is what size copper nail I should use and how far apart they should be spaced?
Where could I find this info.
Have several wooden boat building books that describe the technique, but no comments regarding sizes, etc.
While the original system
worked quite well as a one-off post, it didn’t allow for updating or
posting new photographs etc.
That is why I have
introduced the new Your Pages.
This is new ‘Community’
platform is for 2018.
It is designed to put you
in control of your content, make it easier to for you to tell us about
your Wooden Boat, upload photos etc. and most of all post updates as
and when you wish to.
There is also a forum where
you can ask any questions you may have about Wooden Boats and join in
So, please come on
over and join our community of likeminded Wooden Boaters.
