I've recently started building the San Felipe and have a query with the length of the deck planking.

The lowest (planked) deck it says to use 70mm pieces.
The forecastle deck instructions says to use the same as before.
The sterndeck instructions says to use 60mm pieces.
The poopdeck instructions says to use the same as before.

The question i'm hoping someone can confirm is, are the planks for the forecastle 70mm and the poopdeck 60mm.
Probably obvious but don't want to make a mistake YET!!!!!

Thanks.

It was your build that has given me the inspiration for my build.
You have done an absolute cracking job.
You're a master ship builder by anybodys standards.
