Planking Of The Hull Continued

This weekend I have toiled hard and made good progress. I spent 15 houres by planking the midships sections at port and starboard side. Furthermore I faired the stringers and bulkheads by using plane and belt sander at portside aft section from bulkhead G to stern.

Planking Of Hull Segment From Bulkhead C To G Prepared

Today I faired the stringers from bulkhead C to bulkhead G. The ship's side is just slight curved in this section, so this task was more easy than the same task between stem and bulkhead C.

Last weekend I have prepared the stem timber from a 30 mm thick sapeli plank. Afterwards I screwed and glued it to the bow. Today I spent half an hour to fair it.

Bow Prepared For Attaching The Stem Timber

The outer plywood layers have been glued to the bow-side starboard and port-side radius segments. Most screws were removed after epoxy had set.
Today I faired the bow. Next step is attaching a 30 mm stem timber.
