Smooth Sailing

We are planing down the gain on the starboard side, getting ready for plank #4. On the port side, we are using a spoke-shave to plane down the land.
After we glued Plank #4 on, we used a hand sander and an electric sander to smooth the hull of the boat.
We are sanding down the plank to remove the high spots and prepping for filleting.
In order to feel for the high spots on the planks, we closed our eyes and used our sense of touch.
We are filleting the boat with epoxy using a Popsicle stick. We do this to reinforce the glue joints.
