Jasmine the Restoration dinghy update

The Restoration dinghy "Jasmine" is coming along well with the last four replacement planks well underway and being planned down to thickness and refitted to the boat,

This photo is of the port side aft
 This photo is of the starboard side with the first of the short planks refitted in place, just needs gluing the scarf and clinching in place over the next few days.
The the bilge keels can be refitted and the boat seams cleaned up and the boat painted before turning back on it keel.  Then the hull can be prepared to be sanded down and re varnished on the outside and then it will be the turn of the inside to be cleaned up and sanded down and re-varnished and the seats and lockers refitted.
The work this week on the boat is to get the first of the short planks fixed in place permanently in place and get the other planks planned down to thickness started to be take place.
