Girt/ribbon board question

Monday, February 24, 2003 11:48 AM
Looking at some pix of the new woodie at in Washington started my
thinking about girt, the horizontal boards connecting one bent to another.
Anybody got any ideas on the pros and cons of staggering the girt(also
seen it called ribbon board) like the new S&S woodie and others, RCCA
seems to stagger them also, vs. having them run continous?

From an aeshetics stand point I think the inline type looks better so
I was just wondering what the benefits are of staggering them.

Thanks, I know it is geeky but I am curious

Wow Jim, that *is* pretty geeky, LOL. Seriously though, the benefit of staggering, as with the roof on your house, is that you don't want the weather getting to your *underlayment* or foundation. By staggering, you prevent that problem, and give yourself ample opportunity to fix the minor problems before they get worse...;)

P.S. *Staggering* also lets your friends know you've had one too many...;)

I have no idea wtf any of that means. ;)

A day is a drop of water in the ocean of eternity. A week is seven drops.
