Keel Position

Keel Position

Postby Mastman2 » Sat Apr 09, 2016 7:38 pm

Hi People
Have a problem have built 2 42" barges but need to know how far back to put the keel.
Have read Ivors bit about where to put the keel but could not get my head around it.

Hi,
Let me quote some comments from Kimosuby here..

Still, with out resort to complicated calculations etc most model bargees decide to add a keel. Note; not a fin as this implies a thin item, but a good area of keel. Its position is most usual, on a 1/24 scale barge, with it’s leading edge 3 inches behind the front edge of the mast. It’s purpose is to inhibit leeway, which on such a small flat bottomed hull, is quite large.
Visual examination of the barge profile (all scales) shows that this is also the position that the leeboards occupy when lowered, so if it was a good position for the full size barge builders, then it’s probably good for us modellers too.
Ivor Bittle gave me the same advice.
.. if something looks good, then it's good ...

Thanks for the advise seems like a good starting point, Have built to many barges to mention but never kept measurements of where the keel went that will teach me to keep notes.
