Butch in your before and after posting, (september) I belatedly noticed that you appear to have three planks upwards all in a vertical strip with the same start and finish positions. Isnt this going to add significant weakness here. I thought that these planks were supposed to be staggered?

I may be talking out of my whatsit, cause I have never owned a wooden boat, but I do a lot of woodwork, and that doesnt look quite right!

Hi Talbot. Man I should have removed that cord. It a pice of cord hanging down the side of the boat.A few people questioned me about that photo.It does look like a vertical joint.I'll have to post better pics. The forward ends are coverd by 9mm ply that forms part of the reinforced sheath in that area to suport the chain plates.All the action in this area is hidden by the ply.

Butch, since your are taking so many good pictures, why dont you document the process in a free blog or something? Could be interesting and fun.
