Starting the Planking Process

The first plank was glued in place at the keel, working side to side to keep the loads consistent. Carpenters glue was used at the edge of the planks, and Cya used to glue the plank to the frame, again, working side to side to keep it all symmetrical. Lots of clamps are used to keep the planks aligned along their edge to keep the amount of sanding to a minimum when it comes time to smooth it all up.

And so goes the process. Will post up the results as soon as all the planks are in place.
