Planking the Hull

building

Today the first half of the hull mold got planked using about 60 of the basswood strips we cut earlier. It seems like we have cut just enough to finish the other half and the inner deck.

It took another full day to complete the planking and create epoxy fillets on the inside that hold everything in place permanently.
