Planking of the main deck complete, I've given it a coat of clear varnish to bring out the wood grain.

Ken,

Looking sweet. I like the V shape pattern along the length of the deck.

Ken,

Nice work. I believe the stern has hardest to get right.

Hi all I know I shouldn't yet but I wanted to see how she would look when sanded down so had a quick go.

I know still Leeds a bit of filling in places but I'm really chuffed how it looks at the moment.

Your planking work is looking wonderful. Everything seems to be sitting nicely.

Hi all couldn't resist a bit of varnish (just to see the beauty of the wood grain)

Thanks guys, i must admit I'm pleased with progress so far.
Hi all, sooo close 





Shaping the planks to fit the ever narrowing spaces  (scharf joints I think their called ) is a very slow job (and each one is a different shape) but it is surprisingly satisfying when they finally fit.

Thanks mark.
Finally finished the planking of the hull, luckily the top half is black so I can hide the bad bits under the paint, I'm really pleased with the bottom half though which is good since I will just be varnishing that and leaving the wood to show.

I must admit its turned out far better than I hoped it would.

Ken,

I agree it does look very nice. The planking looks very tight at the joints and sitting flush with the next piece. Did the planks go on that way or was there much putty to apply and sanding to smooth things out?

The planking was more difficult the nearer it got to finishing it but it needed a little filler in places but overall I'm well pleased with the end result.

Hi all well I'm on to the gunwale covers (why they are called that I dont know, they cover nothing have nothing to do with guns and what wale's are I've no idea) anyway I've made a jig to get all the holes in the same place.



Drilled all 52 holes



Gunwales installed





Bit annoyed with the instructions (and myself for not checking) they tell you to drill 52 holes @ 1.5 mm but the brass wire they supply is only 1 mm

Well shes got a name on her now, I feel shes looking like a ship now and with the lines on the side the proportions are looking better (I did think without them she was looking slab sided)

Ken,

She does look more than just a slab. Nice progress.
