To start the bottom planking we mark the frame work on the keel at frame #F4 and at the chines at #F5. The sub planking will be done in the same manner as the side planking, but all the planking will butt joint on the center line of the keel.
This will mean that each plank must be marked were it crosses the center line of the keel and then angle cut with an Xacto knife for the butt joint.

The frame work is marked at frame #F4 at the keel, and at #F5 at the chines. This is were the back edge of the first plank will hit the marks.
We start laying the sub planking, Gluing with medium CA glue as we go. Notice the angle cut of the sub planking on the center line of the keel for the butt joints.
