Today we sorted and carefully checked all the planking material. After which the three pieces that make up each plank were bundled together and put aside to await their turn in the planking process.
When the clamps were removed from the inner stems the springback was very close to what we had estimated for the number of laminations. The inner stems were then cleaned up, covered in packing tape and placed back on the jigs so the outer stems could then be laminated around them. We’re hoping our second lamination job is as successful as the first. Next week we’ll be shaping the stems and hog in preparation for the garboards.
