Thanks Al. We were really getting tired of planking. Glad that's done.
Fitting the whisky plank was an interesting process. My job was to hold things and hand Snapper tools.
We got the boat planked to the point that there was a gap less than two planks wide. Two planks were glued together to form one wide plank. The gap in the bottom was measured at one inch intervals with dividers. The measurement was transferred to the plank. The dots were then connected using a flexible batten and pencil. Snapper then used a hand plane and belt sander to work the edges down to the line. We used a mallet to drive the plank home.
