Bottom Planking

Yesterday I built the chine blocks and keelson. Today was devoted to planking the bottom.

I stayed at it all day, and figured when Simon got home from school he would be available to mix glue and be an extra set of hands. I must say that I was disappointed when he said that he didn’t want to work on the boat today, he wanted to go down the street and play with his friends. Then Kelly reminded me that he is an eight year old. Oh well. Idid finish planking the bottom, and after I get the edges trimmed off the bottom tomorrow, it’ll really start to take shape.
