Rose Anne Belliveau

Built at Belliveau Cove, Nova Scotia in 1919 by Ben Belliveau & Co. and operated by Ben Belliveau & Co. as a three-masted wooden schooner. Dimensions: 130.5’ length x 30.8’ beam x 10.5’ depth. Gross tonnage: 310 tons. Net tonnage: 281 tons. Official registry number 141230. At an unknown date during her career, a Boston newspaper item stated the Rose Anne, under command of Captain Raymond Vincent Comeau, made a very fast run from Belliveau Cove to the Boston Lightship, a distance of 240 miles, in 24 hours. On another occasion she left Boston for Belliveau Cove, loaded 250,000 board feet of rough spruce and returned to Boston in 17 days; this was considered as good as a steamship of the time could have done. The Rose Anne Belliveau ran aground and wrecked at White’s Cove, Nova Scotia (ironically, only about a half mile north of where she was built and launched ten years earlier) on January 19, 1929. Registry closed on February 1, 1929.

John Belliveau has been kind enough to assist in providing valuable information for this build, from wood types and colours to accommodation layouts etc.

Thanks and am glad to be back!
Ribs Added and Platforms Removed, Keel is also complete, Temporary Main Deck Planks can be seen but these will be removed when framework is built.

I have an interesting issue that I cant seem to find a solution for, the Hull Planking is done in 1 group, to show in the rendering however each plank needs to be modeled and grouped seperatly, the method Ive attempted was to use the follow me tool starting from the top line with a circle and intersecting it with the hull face, this works for the first 4 planks but after a while the amount of intersections become to much and it becomes a mess.

Im sure a plugin for this must exist, this task can be achived manually but it will take hours if not days, and it will not be used in the final model at all as its just for rendering purposes.... Ideas?

So why not use several groups of 4 planks instead of 1 group with all the planks?
Would it affect your rendering method? (I don't know SU and Vray).

Thanks Guys, Really enjoying this build! as for the planking, its difficult to explain to a person thats standing next to me let alone do it in writing :P

Dom : I only have the top line to work from and as it progresses down the hull the vertices get broken up into millions of Edges and its not possible to use any from then on, no matter how you group it up thanks to the way its intersecting.

Here is a small Update, I have not modeled the deck framing showing the Horizontal knees as this is quite a task and will again not be used in the final model, Knees seen below will be in the final, keel still needs some Pieces added on top of ribs to finish off.
