    Impressive looking hull. Are you intending to plank with the hull upside down on a flat building board?

    No i started on the hull half way up level with the false deck you can see, I have laid the first few planks but it will be trial and error as this is my first attempt at planking had to shape a couple already but going well at the minute I am sure it will get tougher 😲

    Hull now had two layers of planking never done it before but even if I say so it looks very good, have removed the building decks and fitted the motor and rudder servo just waiting for a reduction sprocket and timing belt , the deck is in place and all planked will publish pictures tomorrow onward and upwardπŸ‘

    Looking very good πŸ‘
    I see you have the keel clamped in a vice. Good, but one at each end might have been better!? Should limit/stop any tendency of the structure to twist. Don't release it until glue on the final planks is set!
    Otherwise normal practise to prevent twist is to plank upside-down (as Dave said) fixed to the building board, starting at the keel and working up on alternate sides. Looking forward to progress reports. 😎

    Hmm! Looking closer I don't see any shaping of the outboard edges of the bulkheads!? 😲
    This is essential to do before planking to ensure proper seating (greater glue contact area) of the planks and maintaining the correct hull shape.
    Use a medium grade sandpaper wrapped around a block of wood ca 2 x 1 and at least as long as the length along 3 adjacent bulkheads.
    If I've missed some detail please ignore the ramblings of an old man, if not ....! Cheers Doug 😎
