excuse my ignorance to building, but i was able to get the bulkheads printed out, and i am going to use the offsets to build all the panels. The question i have is, are the dimensions for where the bulkheads are located on the offsets? there are a few lines marked in RED on there, but nothing stating that that is the location.

hi,

yes, red lines are the places for bulkheads. They are marked just on p2 (four lines in the middle) and p5 but there is no need of big accuracy.

If this is not enough and you need bulkhead lines on all panels, let me know and i'll put them here.

That will work out just fine,

ok, what I meant to say is, I do see the Bulkhead measurements, what about the station measurement? I just want to make sure they are going to be per your drawing, because I am going to make a template with these same pieces just mirror image for a support fixture.

I don't get it. Sorry if i misunderstood something, but you need positions for sections and bulkheads?
In offset tables 2 red lines in the middle on p2 are for sections s2 and s3 and next lines toward bow and stern are for bulkheads s1 and s4 respectively. There is some more red lines, but they are in places where edge lines crosses or 10 cm distance between points is too big to represent curve good enough.

Thank you, i think i figured it out. About how many sheets of Ply does this take?

admin

It depends on sheets dimension. Here dimension for 4mm sheets of ply is 1000x2000 cm, so 4 of them should be enough. And will remain plenty of pieces.
