28 February 2021 - Planking Continues
Planking continues and the photos show the progress as at the end of February 2021. There are now 16 planks on each side of the hull and the transom (blunt end) has been built and is in place.
As there will be three thicknesses of timber on each side, we are consiering adding the second and third layers early. This is because we would need to work on scaffolding to mount the higher planks and doing all the lower planks will save us from having to erect the scaffolding three times.
