Fore Bottom Segments Planked

The ply is stiched to the backbone by using copper wire from electric cables. The shafted joint between bulkheads C and D is fixed by some loads I had culled me on the fly.

Working time been invested: 804 hours

Lower Side Of The Keel Shaft Before Planking

The upper photo shows the lower side of the keel shaft after stringers and bulkheads have been faired and are prepared for planking now.

The lower photo shows the thickness off the coating inside the keel shaft. The epoxy-copper-oxide is about 1mm thick. As scale bar one can use the thickness of the 12mm-7-layer plywood of the shaft.
