We hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving and as the holidays continue we get back to the work at hand. The last of the Caraval planks are in place and the next step will be the attaching of the lapstrake planks. These next planks will overlap each other above the water line by between one and two inches.
Alyn, Clay, Gordon and John examine the fit of the last caraval plank on the starboard/fore side.
