In this episode, Leo and the team start to get the “hang” of the planking! The first quick job is to put the Stopwaters into the centreline seams - softwood dowels which will swell up and prevent water ingress. Then the first Angelique Garboard is hung, and is quickly followed by more Topside Planks and Broads.
Meanwhile, Leo jury-rigs a circular saw to cut rolling bevels, which helps speed up cutting the planks out. The other guys get into the swing of riveting, with the help of a homemade “Dolly” (otherwise known as a “Bucking Iron”).
We are still speeding up, but by the end of the first 2 weeks of planking we have 12 planks on the boat, which Leo's pretty happy with!
