Eight down, four to go.

It’s been another good day in the workshop, with another two pairs of planks on the boat. Two more days will see us get to the whisky plank, and then turn the boat on Wednesday.

We are working at a high rate to get the planking done so that the details of the internal fittings can be worked out before I return to Scotland next Saturday. If anyone out there is intending trying to build any boat at the speed that we are doing this one – don’t bother – there is only so long that you can maintain this effort, and rushing things leads to mistakes. That was where we ended today, so that we weren’t able to hang three pairs.

Here is the secret of being able to build fast…

All wrapped up in a heavy tarpaulin, with electric heaters underneath to speed up the epoxy curing time.

And some more pictures from today…
