As the planking works up the side of the hull it gets easier to fit and install, the curve is not as pronounced, and being up off the floor is nice too.
The scarfs have been working out well and the clamping proceedure i've been using has ensured a compact plank sectionMy small wheeled stool is my get around cart with bottom tray that holds my measuring devices, screws, drill bits, and cordless drill. The process of marking, cutting and fitting the plank is the same as with the previous rows. As some of the pictures show, there is little room around the boat, but enough to get the planking on.
As i'm working on the planking I make notes to remind me to do certian things, the closest thing is the boat so I write on the planking. The planking is left rough and won't see any TLC until the inside is completed and turned over.
