First three planks glued in position, at last.
I extended the jig to get a strong secure mounting for stem and stern post.
Temporary battens at 1/3 and 2/3 midsection girth to check planking run. The batten nearest to the keelson kicks up at fore and aft. The runs seem easy with my 36 x 19 mm strip planks. The original design calls for planks 120 x 32mm which would have been a challenge!
Final shaping of the keelson
Then drill the ballast keel bolt holes.
Then clean up bulkheads and prepare for planking.
A trial dry fit of planking.
Then final checks to ensure bulkheads are straight.
And after a number of trials planking is fitted to starboard side using finger clamps and stainless steel brads.
