😎I have just begun building this tug from a wooden kit and will keep everyone updated as the build goes

Looking very good 👍
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 😎

Hi Dave I've just started this kit and although I have done modelling, rc model aircraft,for years I am still trying to get my head round planking the hull.
I will be following your build closely, and if you don't mind post a photo or two in your build. Looking forward to more.
