Planking continues ….

August 24, 2017

These photos show how a plank that is straight and untwisted after having the plain scarf cut, is attached to the frames wrapped in black plastic. The ” steam machine ” pumps steam into the plastic bagging to heat the plank so that it can be be bent and twisted. After heating the plank is screwed, clamped etc to the frames and it will then maintain this shape as it cools.  It can be attached with bolts and dumps to the frames and hull beams only after the fit is checked by the shipwrights.
