Plank 4

After a bit of a lull due to holidays and illness, we are back at it and plank 4 is the best fit yet. We have found the best way is to prep the boat; lands, gains and bevels then scarf both plank joints. The essential point is the final, accurate dry fit (as per this picture) with all clamps in place. We then mark precise positioning marks so that we do not have to ‘jiggle’ the planks when the glue is wet … we’ll be quite good at this by the time we finish!
