Last pair of planks

Started the last pair of planks tonight. First I pulled the screws out of the starboard plank and trimmed it at the stem.

Screws out, stem not trimmed yet

Then I started the last plank properly by cutting the rabbet on the port side.


I hung the last part of the spiling plank and started marking it up. From old habit I had marked the midpoint of the top stringer and spiled (fidded) the plank to this blue line but luckily I discovered my mistake in time.

Redoing the marking correctly this time

Finally I marked out the plank pieces on the plywood.

The last pair of planks ready for cutting (three pieces each)

Time today: 2.5h
