« Part 2: Transoms Part 3 of 16' Gentlemans Runabout series Part 4: Planking »


Transom planks are put in place with silicon bronze screws.

First plank is cut.


Plank is fastened to stations and batten. We are also using Sikaflex 291 under the planks so that the boat will not swell since it will not be in the water 6 months out of the year.


Next batten is knotched into the stations.


Second plank is cut, steamed and ready to be fastened.

Nice lines on the hull, better pick up the pace, Summer is almost here! Thanks for the series. Makes me want to launch my own boat this weekend. It’s 70 degrees here today and the weather is beautiful.
