But first I planed the spar pieces (boom, yard and sprit) square so that I can start shaping them while I wait for the planking glue to dry.
Despite a cracked blade the smoothing plane works quite nice.
Well onto my planking template. I ripped strips of cheap 6mm ply that will fit between the stringers, on this template I will mark the plank width by using fids.
These are my fids, I will show how I use them tomorrow. I made them while at the BBA.
Template pieces nailed to the frames
The pieces have been joined by gussets to form a smooth curve
Unfortunately did not have any power in either of my power drill batteries so I had to screw the gussets by hand.
From the outside, you can also see the nails into the frame
And from the inside
Here you can see the whole plank template
