Just taken the clamps of the Port side and the plank looks great. Smoothly on and a well glued scarf joint. The process of doing Plank 5 was pretty quick: a weekend of working and two evenings glueing. We are getting quicker at this. Some of the tidying up\cleaning has already been done by our resident sander and quality control man.
Several chocks did stick to the planks and needed to be gently removed but came off without causing too much damage.
Chris has been preparing the oar blanks in his furniture making workshop and will be demonstrating oar shaping at the Victoria Fair to be held tomorrow 29th May at Victoria Primary.
