Plastering to the floorboards

Currently replastering (floating) the bottom 6" of a wall to match the existing floated wall.

I believe a gap should be left between the plaster and floor so that any damp or spillages are not soaked up by the plaster.

What size gap should I leave between the bottom of the plaster and the floorboards ?

no mate, nails for wood and plugs/screws for brick.
and a load of bent clouts left over from beading up.

Expanding foams for sticking skirts on. Couple of nails from the pin gun to hold while going off.

like the sound of that one, will give it a go. clear silicon and pins is a winner too.
clear always seems to stick better than white?
