The first of the new planks going in the bow.

Having waited a couple of days for the planks to cool off and take the shape it was time to fit the plank in place.

Making a work bench out of a old board  and with the aid of a couple of G Cramps made a vice to hold the plank in while I final shaped the plank to fit.
 First dry fitting of the front end of the plank to get it fitting well into the rebake on the stem.

Having fitted the front end into the rebate on the stem it was time to cut the back end 

Finally dry fitted and now ready to paint the plank and put the rest of the fixing in and get on with the next plank

An inside shot to show how small the space to work in on the inside of the boat up forward.
