Main Deck Planking – Midship to Stern

Starting to do the Main Deck from the Midship area back to the Poop Deck on the Stern.

Starting from the middle

As I got to the edge, these Planks that needed custom cutting to fit became more difficult.

Edge Planks

What I normally do is to hold the Plank against the edge and make a Mark at that point. Then, I taper the Plank from that Mark all the way to the end.

I filed out the Main Mast Hole halfway through planking
End cut on Starboard side… This one went in perfectly after the 1st cut!!!
Ugh… I went and covered up the Mizzen Mast Hole forgetting to file it out first!!!

Good thing I remembered it before the glue dried!

I just completed all the Planking for the Main Weather Deck.
