Today I put down two sheets of plywood on the strongback to create the flat surface I will use to glue up the scarfs for each strake of the boat.
There are 26 scarfs to glue and on this platform I easily can do two strakes at a time. So as long as it does not get too cold (my shed is dry but not heated) It should take me seven days to glue up all the strakes.
To properly glue the scarfs it is necessary to line them up using a string guide provided by Hews & co.
The platform also becomes a great space to lay out Ian Oughtred’s plans.
