Now the planks are starting to go on the moulds and its the birth of a new boat.

This photo shows the spoil board being put in place ready to mark the starboard side garboard plank.
This photo shows the spoil board being position on the stem and final trimming of the stem to fit the spoil board.
This photo shows the first garboard plank being cramped in place.

This photo shows the front end of the garboard plank being placed in the steam box to make it possible to cramp it easier to the stem given the tight angle it has to turn to fit the stem.
The steamed garboard plank cramped in place on the stem and left to cool down over the weekend before starting to final fit the garboard next week.
