Big Boat work

Hi all,
A few pics to show were I'm up to.
After swapping labour hours I spieled the 2 remaining hull planks, marked them out on the wood and cut them with Morgan's help today. Later using a Chain Saw! he cut the scarfs on the hull and I now have to fit the panks on the boat.
Meanwhile, the Deadwood has to be replaced and have started that too.
Its coming along ok, not the perfect wood to use, but, its strong and hard wearing and is used extensively for Dock planking here and in the states, its just called yellow pine.

The first plank then, was offered up this afternoon, after I finish these 2 there are only the garboard planks and deadwood remaining to fit.
