You have made an excellent  job of the hull and it will look lovely once varnished.

What type of timber and size was used for the first layer of planking?

Chris

 Hi Chris.
   The first layer planking was all 6 X 1.5mm lime , second layer planking 6 X 1.5mm Walnut above waterline, below waterline 5 X 1.5mm mahogany

The marathon begins, might not be too bad when I get the production line refined.

Err - not really, because the rivets go through into the cross frames, the location of which I took care to mark out on the keel before finishing the planking. Inside of which is 3 layers of resin.. Also when the copper rivets have oxidised and lost their shine their will be 3 coats of varnish over the whole hull area. At present the hull is bare wood with just a wipe over of sanding sealer

Hi Derek.
  The rivets are 0.75mm dia and I am using a 0.7mm drill in the dremel and a hand twiddle drill. The template I am using is a very thin stainless steel Modelcraft scribing template which is very flexible to lay over the curve of the hull. I have taped it to give me holes at 3mm crs. To use it, I lay the template round the hull from rail to keel and mark a line in yellow pencil then drill my first hole at the top rail, tap a pin in the first template hole and lay the template over the line. Prick the holes remove template and drill them (10 holes) then repeat round to the keel . Find I can do about 50 rivets per hour but only a couple of sessions a day as it's a bit intense . Recon I can do all the 3,000 rivets in about a month if I don't burn out.

Decided that this is the stage to make the stern post and rudder assembly .  Have deviated from the suggested arrangement which did not give me any confidence as to it's strength. My arrangement sternpost is a 7 ply sandwich . Similarly the the rudder is a composite ply build up . I am having to work this together with the stern deck construction to ensure the steering is functionable.

Looking amazing, really nice work. Can I ask where you got the rivets from?

Hi   Colin .   The rivets came from John Hemmens (eventually )   they were part of a kit of his.   


 The rudder has taken a fair bit of thought, this is how it has manifested . It is in primer but ready to be fixed onto the hull.

Back end now in order with stern post fitted, decided not to fit the rudder until I have built a suitable stand and support which will be next on the list, just have to source some decent wood for it.
