Clamping Our Style

We used the spokeshave to plane down the edge of the Rudder. We did this in order to reduce drag.

We used the thwarts (seats) from skiff #1 as a template, so we know which thwart is which, where it goes in the boat, and we know what size it will be. 

We were planing the extra wood off the edge of the thwart, (creating a chamfer) to make the thwart appear thinner.

We cut out more foot stretcher brackets for skiff #1 and sanded them down. 

We clamped up the garboard plank without any glue to double check the placement.  

After we glued the cheeks on the Rudder, we sanded it to make it flush and clean up the glue.
