Not really relevant to the building stories but I can get excited looking at the way the 1930’s builders of our barge have forged the ends of the butting plates out so that they have a minimal thickness where they are tucked into the hull plating overlaps. 

Lovely detail, or is it just me?

Ik kan uren kijken naar dit soort details, waar de uiteindes van de stuiplaten uitgesmeed zijn om in de landen geklonken te kunnen worden.
