Blog is a little behind so i'm putting together a doubler. I apologize for being behind but friends and family are more important than a blog, sooo... Here is what you've missed!
There are some rules of thumb in this operation passed down from the boat ninja Mr. Speck. They have to do with where planks land in the bow and stern, thicknesses and the like. I am not going to spill the beans all over the internet so lets just say, "if you want your planking to look good you better have a plan and you'd better lay it out first!"
