Its the season to be sick, cold and flu have both gotten me. Luckily the latest (a cold) i can pretend isn't there. Except for the sneezing and nose blowing. I like colds more than the flu, a cold you can tell to f$#@ off, the flu tells you that.
Enough on sickness, lets see where the boats ended up this week. It has been one big spiling party. Planks getting fastened and everyone has a project, these two boats are really hitting their stride.
Here is the bow section of the second broad i installed. In order of apperaence here are the tools of the trade, 1.5inch chisel, spoke shave, low angle block plane, #3.5 bench plane, backing out plane, and a scrub plane. These are all tools used in tuning up (fitting) the plank. Once your at this point in a planks life most of the work has been done. So it is time to steam it into place.
All three of these planks are mine, garboard (top) first broad, and second broad. You can see that we are past the serious twist so the port-a-power was not needed to fit this plank.
