planking ..........nearly half way

52 days

The picture shows the planking on the port side. From the garboard 11 planks have been fitted and all are full length. We're pleased as this is more than we were expecting. All the rest apart from the rubbing strake will be in 2 lengths.

Those in 2 lengths are joined with a butt joint and backed up with a butt block which is an offcut from the planking stock, and rivetted together with copper nails and roves.
