The balsa sub planking will be done using the 3/32 x 5/8x 36 hard balsa strips. The side planking will be done on the diagonal starting with the front edge of the plank on frame #F4 at the shear and at #F5 at the chine. All the following sub planking will be butted against the fist plank working aft the transom, gluing with medium CA glue, the planks at the shear, the center batten, chine, and what ever frame work the plank should cross over.

When gluing butting planking to the frame work, you can also glue the butting planks with thin CA glue in between the shears and the center batten , and also in between the center batten and the chine.
