Then it was time to start the second plank.
Template pieces have been clamped onto the third stringer
Gussets have been screwed onto the template pieces to make it a continuos plank template
After the fidding I could remove the template and start marking the planking stock.
Top edge of the forward plank piece....
.... and the bottom edge
Ready for cutting tomorrow
As I am working on the second plank I need to cut the rabbet on the garboard, a bit scary but it worked out fine using saw, chisel and rabbet plane.
Rabbet marked out, 200mm from stem
Making the saw cut for the chisel
After chiseling out the lower part of the rabbet so that the rabbet plane will have an edge to "lean" on
Both sides done
Finally I honed my new smoothing plane blade (to replace the cracked one), I got a new Stanley blade as I could not justify the additional cost of getting a better blade, the original has served it's purpose despite being cracked. The blade was 13 Euros and I also got a better honing guide (5 Euros).
New blade and honing guide
Time today: 5h
