In the past week we have managed to get the bottom planks for both sides of the boat made up and have tidied up the joints – so the boat will go faster!. We are also getting on with fairing the hog which is as tricky as expected and requires a great deal of judgement – too much off and the bill for filler goes up, too little and the joint won’t be strong enough.
This week we hope to get to the stage of dry fitting the planks. We also want to straighten up the tent and move the timber stocks out of it to give us more room to work on the boat. If we have time we will also make up the next 2 planks.
