Can anybody recommend any good books on plank repairs?

strip, clinker, carvel?

I'm drawing a 'Plank' here.

said woeful plank has gone amiss due to faulty fastenings, errant edges or other sad delapitory delemna. wouldst thou be considering replacement,as when oneself mentioned repair, or is a new life to spring forth from waning water wrapper.

ps. Lin and Larry Pardey are carvel demi-Gods and a good place to start for a nice read. many books, articles ::: but ::: "Details of Classic Boat Construction THE HULL". is killer for pictures and detail.

The book on plank replacement is "put it back as it was first done, or better". The trick is to know how it was done originally, or should have been done.
