Busy Thursday under at the boatyard

Having cut to shape it was time to plane the rebates on the top and bottom edge front and rear  before dry fitting the plaqnk  

Steaming the gunwales on the opposite side top plank while working on the replacement plank 

Fitting the new replacement plank using traditional clamps  

final positioning of the plank before nailing and clinching in position  

Mai-Star I dinghy ready to get its new gunwales and rubbing strakes

Starboard side done 

 Then the port side is done 

Looking a lot better and the top edge of the dinghy is a lot less flexible

Jasmine back from the riggers and now ready to go to its new home on a lake near London.
