Lining out

34 days

First job of the week was to line out the planking runs. We do this with a batten to make sure we have fair curves in the planking which not only look right but make the planking process easier. Having done each plank individually with the batten we then pinned the frames along the seam lines and wrapped baler twine around to give an overall impression.

More work was then done cutting the rabbet to receive the first planks which will go on next week, starting at the garboard (bottom plank) and working up.

Meanwhile Charlie has been busy cutting and fitting the sole bearers
