Fitting replacement planks to a 1930’s yacht

The hole before the hull was painted and cleared up ready to fit the new plank

Starting to fit the new plank and fitting into the hole a planing off a little at a time to ensure it fits correctly in the space between the planks

Fixed in place with a mixture of copper nails and bronze screws

Finished plank now painted with primer and ready to be caulked with caulking cotton and sealed with linseed oil putty

The rudder getting its final coats of primer before it goes back on the transom of the yacht.

Tomorrow job is to fit the planks on the port side
