The planking has commenced but there has been difficulty in installation of plank 2 as it did not want to sit on the moulds at the correct points. All the other builds are experiencing the same problem with even greater difficulty. We have now succeeded in installing it but a little "fairing" work will be required with "Long Boards" (long boards of plywood with 80 grit sandpaper attached). 

The following work has been done this week: Both Garboard Planks installed.  Port 2nd Plank installed. Starboard 2nd Plank cut and scarfed with rebates cut both fore and aft. This plank has been dry fitted (no glue applied), and is ready to be glued in position.
