One of the causes of the hull and keel leaks

The garboards planks have not been nailed to the hog/ inner keel as the the rest of the planks with nails and roves 

So in order to help to seal the garboard planks on to the hog/inner keel the garboards are now getting a line of nails with roves along the  hog/inner keel to strengthen this joint and stop the garboard plank leaking between the hog and garboard seam.

The row of nails now done to stop the leak and strengthen the joint and seam.
