Completed strakes @7/9/2019 ….

The total completed strakes remains at 11 but the number of planks fixed to the hull is now 146.

I use the term “completed strakes ” to indicate that the planks of a strake have been fixed to the hull. The strake has had plugs glued into holes, sanded and painted and though this may look finished it is not. All strakes are still to be faired or planed to the desired final shape.  All unevenness like saw blade marks from the mill and different thickness in each plank is still be addressed.  The photograph with areas marked shows some examples of the work still to be done.
