« Part 1: Stations Part 2 of 16' Gentlemans Runabout series Part 3: Planking »

We used oak door skins for templates to install the planks.

16’ african mahagony planks arrived and we started to mill them to the proper size.

Began to steam the transom planks.

Installed the battens and the first plank on the transom.

Transom planks are all installed, now starting to hang the planks on the bottom.

See you next time.

Looking good. I do enjoy watching woodworking on this scale.
