How are your scarf joints cut?

The scarf joints are cut in a ratio of about 1:10, which means that the bevel edge get 10 times the length of the strip cross-section, so that you can be sure to get a permanent gluing.
The course of each scarf joint takes place from the inner edge ship's side to toward the outer edge at the stern side.

How do I proceed with bulwark strips during installation?

The scarf joins of the bulwark strips must first glued, because how longer the strips are, so much better you can adjust the strip later paralell to the ship hulk. Are the joints have been glued, the bulwark should be mounted dry on the hulk and fixed with a few screws. Make sure that you start mounting at the largest bend of the ship, otherwise you may find the rest of the strip too short and you will not have enough leverage to pull the strip around the ship hulk

Mark the bulwark strip on the hulk on top and bottom with a fine pin - and tear also the remaining holes. Remove the strip again, sand the surface (where the strip should sit) and clean it again thoroughly. Apply a permanently elastic adhesive (such as Sikaflex) with a notched trowel exactly between the two markings before you start the actual final assembly.
