The death of a saw

Continued the planking today.

Marked out the scarfs and the bulkhead locations

Cut the rabbet

Hung the spiling plank/template

Marked the pieces on the ply

Ready for cutting

As I was cutting the last piece the sabre saw started to get very hot, it made strange noises, small pieces of plastic fell out of it and it stopped cutting.......  It served me well for almost ten years but now it is time for a replacement. So I had to do the final cut by hand.


Finally I glued the port side plank onto the boat, this time I did scarf joints but did the assembly on the boat instead of  the bench. (Went very smoothly, let's see tomorrow how they came out)


and aft

Time today: 7h
